International Philanthropy Study – Part Two!
Monday, 11th September 2000 at 12:09 pm

Despite the growing importance of Not for Profit organisations, there is still very little known about them worldwide.

As a result, phase two of the Johns Hopkins Comparative Nonprofit Sector Project
has released a timely overview of the situation.

The project documents for the first time the size, scope, financing, and the role of Not for Profits in 22 countries.

It targets the third sector in countries within Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America and other developed countries including the USA, Japan, Israel and Australia.

The principal findings of the second phase of the project are grouped under five headings.

1. The Not for Profit sector is a major economic force. In 22 countries it is a $1.1 trillion industry.

2. There is a great variation in the size of the Not for Profit sector among countries and regions.

3. The third sector is dominated by welfare services with two third of all Not for Profits concentrating on education, health and social services.

4. Most revenues come from fees and the public sector, not philanthropy. Globally, private philanthropy (from individuals, corporations and foundations) only constitutes 11 percent of the total Not for Profit income.

5. The Not for Profit sector is a major employment generator, employing the equivalent of 19-million full time staff.

In the breakdown of statistics country by country the study shows that Australia’s revenue share is made up of 31.1 percent from the public sector, 6.4 percent from the private sector and 62.5 percent from fees and charges.

Stage three of the research will address the causes of the patterns of Not for Profit development and the broader implications and contributions the sector makes.
