WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES FOR CIVIL SOCIETY?

A thriving civil society is crucial to meet the many social, environmental, political and economic challenges our world faces today. Its success depends on the existence of a strong, vibrant and locally-supported civil society. However, the sector is suffering some of its greatest ever challenges:

  • a global decline in institutional trust and confidence
  • an over-reliance on declining foreign funding
  • closing civic space
  • competition for limited resources

AN UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY TO TRANSFORM CIVIL SOCIETY

We’re living through the greatest shift from poverty to relative affluence in history.

According to our report, Groundwork for Growing Giving, up to 2.4 billion people could enter the middle classes globally by 2030.

If they dedicated just 0.5% of their spending to charitable causes, it would generate $319 billion a year for civil society organisations (CSOs).
