For more than ten years CAF has researched and analysed international giving trends.  Our annual World Giving Index offers a unique insight into charitable behaviour around the globe and our growing collection of Country Giving Reports help understand local giving patterns. We are also exploring the role of business in supporting civil society and have researched philanthropic tax incentives across the globe. Our case studies highlight the real impact of giving and offer guidance on how to give well.  If there’s a document you can't find, please contact us.
