The aim of the CAF World Giving Index is to provide insight into the scope and nature of giving around the world. In order to ensure that giving is understood in its various forms, the report looks at three aspects of giving behaviour. The questions that lie at the heart of the report are:
Have you done any of the following in the past month? Helped a stranger, or someone you didn’t know who needed help? Donated money to a charity? Volunteered your time to an organisation?
This sixth edition of the World Giving Index again presents giving data from across the globe over a five year period (2010-2014). The World Giving Index 2015 includes data from 145 countries across the globe that was collected throughout the calendar year of 2014. A full explanation of the methodology used is included in the appendices.
