Since the beginning of the 21st century, the Gulf philanthropic organizations have been witnessing significant financial and institutional developments. They have successfully been able to enhance their resources, improve their administration, and develop their local activities. Meanwhile, Western philanthropic foundations have increasingly been playing influential roles in this new age of globalization. Therefore, the Gulf philanthropic organizations which look forward to expanding their activities internationally and still lack strategic orientation and suitable mechanisms can learn from the experiences of Western philanthropic foundations.
This paper highlights lessons from the international experiences of Western philanthropic foundations which may be helpful in enhancing the prospect international roles of Gulf philanthropic organizations. In the first section, I discuss common characteristics, fields, mechanisms, and outcomes of the international activities of Western philanthropic foundations. In the second section, I underline the lessons that the Gulf philanthropic organizations may learn from these activities.
