The Global Philanthropy Data Charter is a framework to guide organizations in the sector as they set out to improve philanthropy data. It proposes both a code of good practice to improve the working relationships of those involved in philanthropy data—users, providers and collectors—as well as a framework for engaging other sectors around sharing and using philanthropy data for public benefit.
The Charter was created as part of a collaborative process involving a series of consultations with different organizations to help guide the philanthropic sector’s data-related work and instill a data culture. After launching the Charter in 2014, WINGS has been conducting webinars and workshops to assess how the Data Charter is being used and what are the next steps for advancing philanthropy data.
The Charter is now being updated and as a part of this some case studies from our members will be released to show how the Data Charter can be used in practice. The first one is from the Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy and can be downloaded here.
