Report Synopsis

This report analyses the emerging role of private voluntary contributions in humanitarian donorship. It shows that private support to international development and humanitarian assistance has become increasingly important in recent years. This trend has not escaped aid agencies, which are paying special attention to private donors.

The report examines the levels of private funding of the different types of humanitarian organisations and illustrates that some of them contribute more funding to the international humanitarian response than most donor governments. Finally, it looks at the major trends in private funding allocation to recipient countries.
