Philanthropy and Social Investment in the Middle East

Spring 2019
Culture and religion in the Middle East are closely linked with philanthropy. One of the five pillars in Islam is ‘zakat’, making it mandatory to donate if one is able. For this reason faith is an important influence on HNWI giving. There are some interesting differences about the motivation for giving in Middle East, Europe and Asia. According to past research, reported in PhilanthropyAge, the majority of Middle East HNWI donations are to support social change by investments in areas such as education and gender equality.

Technology will be the main driver of this change.” “…we anticipate that a range of new opportunities will emerge.” ( The Future of the Professions by Richard Susskind and Daniel Susskind) One approach is to make adviser expertise available on a value added basis, beyond basics, by delivering additional services such as supporting individuals and families of wealth through their donor journey to make it relationship reinforcing and personal.
