Doing Good Index 2020

The Doing Good Index (DGI) examines the enabling environment for philanthropy and private social investment across 15 Asian economies. Composed of four areas–tax and fiscal policy, regulatory regimes, socio-cultural ecosystem, and government procurement–the Index reveals how Asian economies are catalyzing philanthropic giving. The DGI 2020, the second edition of the study, looks at the progression or lack thereof of regulations and policies that govern the charitable sector. The Doing Good Index serves as a unique and useful body of data for Asian governments, as well as for nonprofits, foundations and charities in Asia, to learn from each other at a time when policies related to the sector are constantly evolving. The DGI is published by the Centre for Asian Philanthropy and Society (CAPS).
