GROSS DOMESTIC PHILANTHROPY

AN INTERNATIONAL ANALYSIS OF GDP, TAX AND GIVING

Gross Domestic Philanthropy: An international analysis of GDP, tax and giving, aims to update findings previously published by CAF in 2006 around international comparisons of charitable giving, and to provide an analysis of the relationship between GDP, tax and giving within a number of countries.

The report looks at available data for 24 countries to examine some of the factors affecting the link between GDP and charitable giving, with measures including overall tax burden, top tax rate, average income tax, corporation tax,  government expenditure as a percentage of GDP and employer social security charges.
