Charities Aid Foundation World Giving Index 2018

See which countries are the most generous, as the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) World Giving Index reveals where 146 countries rank for three giving areas: donating money, volunteering and helping a stranger.

Now in its ninth year, the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) World Giving Index looks at charitable behaviour around the world and shares insights into the nature of giving and trends in global generosity.

The CAF World Giving Index 2018 is based on data collected over a five year period (2013-2017). It includes results from 146 countries collected throughout 2017. Each country is ranked for three giving behaviours:

  • Helping a stranger
  • Donating money
  • Volunteering time

What are the key findings from the CAF World Giving Index 2018?

  • Giving has increased in developed countries; a welcome reversal of the decline we saw last year amongst most of the top- scoring Western countries.
  • The giving gap between the continents is closing. For example, five years ago there was a 7 percentage point gap between the index scores of the Americas and Africa. Now it stands at just 1 percentage point.
  • More people around the world reported helping a stranger and volunteering their time in 2017, but the proportion donating money has declined for the second year in a row.
