Charitable acts know no geographical or economic boundaries and are often driven by the spirit of giving. In the world of philanthropy, CEOWORLD magazine’s Global Giving Index serves as a beacon, providing insight into global charitable behaviors. This annual report is based on the largest survey of charitable activities worldwide and carefully examines three key aspects: monetary donations, voluntary contributions of time, and helping strangers. It’s worth noting that assisting strangers is the most common charitable behavior, with over 2.5 billion people extending assistance in the past decade.

According to a report by the United Nations, countries like Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Kenya, and Liberia, classified as lower or middle-income nations, have emerged among the world’s top 20 most charitable nations. The report highlights the diverse nature of generosity, emphasizing that it can thrive across different landscapes and transcends economic, cultural, and religious differences. Amid the challenges, uplifting narratives emerged. Nations like Indonesia and Thailand have experienced significant boosts in charitable giving driven by faith-based contributions. In Africa, the Ubuntu spirit fostered a profound sense of community, translating into notable acts of generosity. A noteworthy global highlight was the surge in the percentage of people donating to help strangers, reaching 77 percent. In 2023, resilience, unexpected shifts, and reaffirming the universal impulse to give marked global philanthropy.

From 2013 to 2023, we witnessed a remarkable commitment from various nations towards charitable causes. Here is a detailed breakdown of the top philanthropic countries during this decade.
