Philanthropy Law Reports

The Reports present timely information on national laws and regulations affecting philanthropy. Each report was authored by a local expert in partnership with ICNL.

“In our work, we often hear that there is a lack of clear, concise information available to help philanthropists understand the legal environment for giving in particular countries,” said Catherine Shea, ICNL’s Vice President - Programs. “Our goal with the Philanthropy Law Reports is to fill that gap.” ICNL hopes that the reports will serve as a practical guide for the philanthropic sector and the nonprofit world.

The Philanthropy Law Reports are made possible by the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
