Global Philanthropy Tracker

 

The Global Philanthropy Tracker measures total aid—both formal and, to a lesser degree, informal—from developed and emerging countries to developing countries at all stages of economic development, while also highlighting the collaborative partnerships and infrastructure that support philanthropic efforts across the globe. In doing so, the Global Philanthropy Tracker offers the world’s only holistic view of the state and magnitude of aid to the developing world.
