WHAT is philanthropy infrastructure?
Worldwide, there are institutions creating the conditions for a favourable environment for philanthropy institutions to accomplish their mission and achieve their potential. Activities and policies that strengthen the sector include a legal framework that empowers them, a tax structure that provides incentives for giving, an accountability system that builds confidence in philanthropy and civil society, sufficient institutional capacity to implement effective activities and sufficient resources to undertake these activities, and a strong culture of giving to grow philanthropy. This positive environment is what we call philanthropy infrastructure.
