Around the world, need has never been greater. Non profits and governments are being asked to do more every day to assist in natural disasters, the homeless, medical assistance, education, every aspect of our society is under stress.
Yet around the world the amount given to support those less fortunate has failed to rise as need has risen and The Give Back Campaign alongside major world leaders in the non profit space are banding together to change this situation.
Over the last 40 years, donations around the word have sat at approximately 2% of worldwide GDP. In the United States in 2015 alone this amount was approx. $350B , 60B donated by corporates, $290 billion from individuals.
To help alleviate poverty, educate the poor, cure diseases and more we need to raise this 2% to 3%. If we can do this it will amount to in the United States alone, an additional $165 Billion dollars per year.
If you doubt the need to raise this level and want to hear from some of the worlds most notable philanthropists on the subject, watch these videos.
Over the coming months we’ll be launching a series of initiatives to bring those passionate about making serious world change together to share their vision, techniques, successes and challenges to helping raise the target from 2% to 3%.
