Hudson Institute Releases Pilot Study on Philanthropic Freedom

04 April 2013

Philanthropic Freedom: A Pilot Study assesses the level of philanthropic freedom in 13 countries and provides recommendations for policymakers.  Specifically, the study examines the degree of philanthropic freedom by measuring three indicators: civil society regulation, domestic tax regulation, and cross-border flows regulation.

The study was led by the Hudson Institute’s Center for Global Prosperity.  ICNL was pleased to serve as a project partner on this initiative, which provides important analytical information on the legal framework for philanthropy around the world. ICNL’s President Douglas Rutzen also gave a presentation on philanthropy trends from a historical and global perspective at Hudson Institute to commemorate the launch of the study.
