This month, Alliance Extra features two articles on the Giving Pledge, as Russian billionaire Suleyman Kerimov plans to give away his US$7.1 billion fortune, and the number of pledgers rises to 114. Continuing last month’s theme of collaboration, Silicon Valley Community Foundation and GuideStar India form the India Giving Network portal, and the Clinton Global Initiative announces its plans to expand to Latin America.
Also this month, we report on governments in Egypt and India as they act to limit foreign influence on civil society, whilst the Russian government search the offices of hundreds of organisations across Russia in what is being described as a “crackdown on civil society”. In other updates, investors applaud G8 government support for impact investing, the Gleitsman International Activist Award is taking nominations, and we announce the winner of the King Baudouin African Development Prize.
