Center for Global Prosperity

The Center for Global prosperity provides a platform-through conferences, discussions, publications, and media appearances-to create awareness among U.S. and international opinion leaders, as well as the general public, about the central role of the private sector, both for-profit and not-for-profit, in the creation of economic growth and prosperity in any country.

The Center’s core product is the annual Index of Global Philanthropy and Remittances, which details the sources and magnitude of private giving to the developing world. The Index reframes the discussion about the roles of public and private sectors in foreign aid by showing that the full scale of a country’s generosity is measured not just by government aid, but by private giving as well. These private financial flows-including philanthropy and volunteerism from foundations, charities, corporations, universities, and churches as well as remittances-constitute the majority of the developed world’s economic engagement with developing nations.

Philanthropic Freedom: A Pilot Study is the first analysis of philanthropic freedom across the world. In this 13 country pilot study, they examined barriers and incentives for individuals and organizations to donate resources to social causes.

The Center supports free societies, including capital markets, rule of law, government transparency, free trade and press, human rights, and private property- prerequisites for economic health and well-being.
