There is a lack of consistent, comprehensive data on philanthropic giving in Israel. This lack of data puts Israel at a disadvantage in academic research, policy making, and in fundraising practice.
The data lab for philanthropy is Israel is designed to map, study, collect, analyze and share statistical data on charitable giving in Israel. It is a complex co-operation engaging representatives from various governmental agencies, national philanthropic institutions, private philanthropic organizations, and academic researchers in the process.
A Game Changing Outcome
The goals of this project are to have better data and understanding of giving behaviors, to promote vast academic research, to enable reasoned policy-making and to create an opportunity for sharing data and knowledge, supporting development of best practices and strategy among foundations, donors and non-profits. This project is based on collaborative efforts with researchers and institutional partners such as: Yad Hanadiv, The Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies, Brandies University, Maala, Committed to Give and The Central Bureau of Statistics.
