Pakistan Giving Index 2021

March 7, 2022

This report examines the giving behaviour of people in Pakistan and provides insight into the scope and nature of giving in various forms. Based on a perception survey of around 2000 individuals interviewed across Pakistan, the study looks at three aspects of giving behaviour through asking questions on whether people donated money to charity and to whom they gave, their motivation for giving, the perceived impact of their charity and volunteered time to an organization?The results signify Pakistanis as a nation of givers. About 8 in 10 persons interviewed including both males and females, said that they had given charity or financially helped a poor person during the past one year. When asked, when was the last time they made some sort of social contribution, around 40% stated that they did so within the past one month. On average, a Pakistani adult reported having spent around PKR 10,000 in a year on charitable giving.

Giving to Pakistan: Guidelines for Donors

May 24, 2021

Pakistan is one of the fastest growing countries in the Asian region with a population of nearly 220 million people, with an estimated number of 49.5 million people living in poverty. These socio-economic conditions are the main driving source behind the estimated 15,000 to 20,000 nonprofits (NPOs) operating in the country. Almost 46% of NPOs work in education, and approximately 17% focus on civil rights and advocacy; the remainder provides social services in areas of health, relief, culture and recreation. Given this landscape, as well as the need to navigate the rules and regulations of both donor and recipient jurisdictions, especially from the perspective of a US donor and/or grant-maker, it is vital to have a comprehensive understanding of the local context, as well as the requirements and conditions impacting cross-border giving to Pakistan.We expect that these guidelines will be of value to the broad spectrum of donors, grant-makers and NPOs. I look forward to working together to further enhance cross-border philanthropic inflows to Pakistan.
