Introductory Note to Cultures of Giving Country Profiles

September 3, 2021

The Cultures of Giving working group started in January 2018. Its work is a continuation of a series of efforts underway since 2010 when WINGS published its report on global philanthropy. The main conclusion of that report was that global philanthropy is not the model that existed in some of the industrial countries and propagated through grantmaking to therest of the world, but a tapestry of practices from around the world that are diverse, with similarities and differences, and yet forms a rich mosaic of the practices reflecting local cultures and practices.

Philanthropy in Russia

January 1, 2018

The report provides an overview of the current state of philanthropy in Russia, based on conversations with people who have been working to promote, support or strengthen different areas of philanthropy. Our aim is to shine a light on new ideas and innovations, and the implications of these for the future role of philanthropy. We hope this will enable us to better address the questions: what is the role and purpose of philanthropy and how do we build a supportive ecosystem for it?
