As the world transitions to a new normal and societies seek to recover from the economic impacts of COVID-19, the ESG agenda is climbing the list of priorities for organizations, individuals and broader society, including amongst those wealthy populations who are looking to give back. Against this backdrop, we are seeing the emergence of a new wave of modern philanthropists adopting innovative approaches to philanthropic activity.

During 2021, KPMG Family Office & Private Client conducted surveys and in-depth interviews with select philanthropists around the world to uncover how they support various causes, the approaches they adopt as well as their successes and lessons they have learned along their journeys.

The “Disruptive Philanthropists” report is the result of this research. The report highlights new approaches, collaboration strategies, and emerging trends amongst some of today’s most active philanthropists. The report also explores broader macro trends shaping the giving landscape, as well as case examples and key learnings from philanthropists, which may help others seeking to maximize their philanthropic impacts.
