2014 BNP Paribas Individual Philanthropy Index

Feb 01, 2014
  • Description

The 2014 BNP Paribas Individual Philanthropy Index by Forbes Insights measures and reflects the commitment of individual philanthropists from Europe, Asia, the Middle East and, for the first time, the U.S. in terms of three main criteria: the amounts given, innovation and the effort invested to promote their causes. The data for the index is derived from a survey of more than 400 individuals -- divided equally among the three regions and with at least $5 million in investable assets -- conducted by Forbes Insights between October and December 2013. Additional interviews with ultra-wealthy philanthropists in these regions were conducted by Forbes Insights.
