Strategic Philanthropy: Giving in the Gulf Cooperation Council

octubre 11, 2022 @ 09:00 - 10:15

Strategic Philanthropy: Giving in the Gulf Cooperation Council. A promising future for philanthropy in the region.


Strategic Philanthropy: Giving in the Gulf Cooperation Council

With the deep-seated Arab traditions of giving and generosity and the growing prosperity and ambitions of GCC philanthropists, all signs point to a promising future for philanthropy in the region. The GCC enjoys unique characteristics, including the combination of Arab and Islamic cultures of giving, growing wealth and prosperity, emerging new generations of philanthropists and ambitious government transformation plans. The intersection of these factors ultimately shapes the motivations, practices and trends in giving in the region.

Philanthropy in the region is evolving, featuring a thriving and growing community of philanthropists who are increasingly seeking to collaborate and exchange best practices both regionally and internationally, and ultimately scale up the contributions to society.

«The CSP at the University of Cambridge and the Strategic Philanthropy Initiative at NYU Abu Dhabi were established with the mission of catalyzing the impact of strategic philanthropy through research, education and convenings. The report “Giving in The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC): Evolving towards strategic philanthropy” is an important work, shedding light on the culturally rooted tradition of giving and generosity in the region. My hope is that initiatives of this nature inspire new generations of philanthropists to give in more strategic ways, and ultimately to help transform our region for the better.» 

Badr Jafar, CEO of Crescent Enterprises, Founder of the Pearl Initiative, Founding Patron of the Centre for Strategic Philanthropy
