Chile has a large non-profit sector, on a par with that in Argentina and many developed economies, including Spain, Portugal and Italy, according to the first comprehensive assessment of the sector in Chile, recently released by the Johns Hopkins Comparative Nonprofit Sector Project.

One reason for this may be the extensive government support for the non-profit sector in Chile, which is higher than elsewhere in Latin America, and close to the level in Western Europe’s Welfare Partnership model of the non-profit sector.
