Transparency in the Netherlands’ Nonprofit Sector

Transparency in the Netherlands’ Nonprofit Sector

The contribution of philanthropic activities to positive societal change remains unclear due to a lack of data at the level of philanthropic organizations. This project uses computational social science tools to enhance research on the transparency and insight in the activities and outcomes of philanthropic organizations in the Netherlands.

We describe the contributions of philanthropic organizations to the Sustainable Development Goals, the diversity of boards of philanthropic organizations, the network of relationships among philanthropic organizations, and their relationships with networks of corporations.

To do so, we provide a publicly available database on the activities of audited and approved philanthropic organizations, including data on contributions to Sustainable Development Goals, financial data, and organizational identifiers that allow to link with other datasets.
