Philanthropy in the Arab Region 

This report on philanthropy in the Arab region is part of a larger study, started in 2016, to review the current state of philanthropy in emerging economies and the role philanthropy is playing in the world today. This is the third report from the study - earlier editions focused on Indian Philanthropy and Russian Philanthropy.

The report provides an overview of the current state of philanthropy in the Arab region, particularly shining a light on new areas and innovation within philanthropy, and the implications of these for its future role. While it draws on existing reports and articles where available, the main aim is to throw light on Arab philanthropy through conversations with people who have been trying to promote, support or strengthen different areas of philanthropy. It looks at what currently exists in their particular area of philanthropy and what role it is playing in relation to the state and the private sector; what is driving it and what is holding it back; what potential role it could play and what is needed for the potential to be realized. It also shares examples of outstanding achievements.
