Doing Good Index 2022

The inaugural 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 catalysing philanthropic giving. The DGI 2022, the third edition of the study, focuses mainly on the impact of COVID-19 on the social sector and the role of charitable organisations in responding to the challenges posed by the pandemic. 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).
