The Global Guide to What Counts

At present, there is no international consensus based in tax law on what characteristics describe a charitable institution. Without a common thread among countries, companies—individually and collectively—are unable to consistently track and benchmark total global giving to these institutions around the world. The lack of a single, consistent, international definition prevents meaningful data-driven decision-making among corporate giving practitioners, executives, investors, and consumers alike.
