Doing Good Index – Assessing the Environment for Charitable Giving and Receiving in Asia

Project Leader: Pankaj Vashisht
Research Team: Anandita Bagchi, Noshir Dadrawala (External Consultant), Michelle Chow (External Consultant)
Commencement: July 2016
Funded by: Tata Education and Development Trust

Despite a phenomenal increase in interest, the philanthropy sector in Asia has remained grossly under researched. There has been no effort to examine and document the government regulations and fiscal incentives that govern the charitable sector in various Asian economies. Similarly, little is known about the other societal factors such as the availability of trained manpower, corporation’s attitude towards volunteerism etc. that aid the creation and sustenance of a healthy charitable sector. This project indents to fill this void. Undertaking an in-depth analysis of government regulations along with an extensive survey research, project will develop a set of indicators that in aggregate will allow us to rate and rank the environmental and regulatory factors that affects an individual’s and corporation’s ability to engage in helping solve social issues in the country. The Doing Good Index would be ground-breaking as a first-of-its-kind review of the philanthropy sector across Asian economies. With this work, we would be able to ascertain which policies are the most effective in promoting a vibrant charitable sector.
