International comparisons of charitable giving

This report contributes to the understanding of charitable giving in an international context by comparing levels of individual giving within a number of different countries.

By measuring the charitable giving of countries against their national wealth, giving levels are brought into a comparable format. The findings reveal that only the USA’s charitable giving is equivalent to over 1% of its GDP (Gross Domestic Product). The UK is in second place with 0.73% of its GDP going to charitable giving.
