Transfer from Hudson Institute

The Hudson Institute’s Center for Global Prosperity first published The Index for Global Philanthropy and Remittances in 2006. The Index for Philanthropic Freedom was launched by the Hudson Institute in 2015.

For over 10 years, these global philanthropic indices provided in-depth analyses on the size and sources of the incentives and barriers to global giving and the state of philanthropy around the world.

In 2017, the publications were formally transferred to the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, which will continue to publish the reports under the titles the Global Philanthropy Environment Index and the Global Philanthropy Resource Flows Index.

At the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy’s Global Indices, the indices will continue to grow as vital markers of global philanthropy that equip policymakers, philanthropy and nonprofit leaders, business leaders, the news media, and the public with a clear understanding of the global philanthropic landscape.

We know that the public and private sectors need the help of philanthropy to solve the world’s problems. With famine and refugees in need of immediate relief, and grave risks to peace and sustainability looming on the horizon, the stakes could not be higher.
