The second edition of the Global Philanthropy Data Charter has been published by the Foundation Center, WINGS, and Centris.
Originally launched in 2012, the Charter has been ‘re-imagined’ to encourage organizations to understand the value of data in their work, create and share data that is comparable across borders and systems, and collaborate in effective partnerships in an ever-changing world.
The Charter offers a vision for how data can be leveraged to strengthen mission-driven work at foundations and NGOs worldwide, such as informing initiative design, establishing strategic partnerships, promoting accountability, building trust, and showcasing philanthropy’s contributions to development.
It also provides principles for data sharing and a guide for understanding the needs and motivations of various data stakeholders.
