Corporate-NGO Partnership in Asia Pacific

1997-1999

The forming of partnerships between corporations and fledgling Asian NGOs is a recent trend in Asia Pacific philanthropy. In August 1997, JCIE began researching the effectiveness of philanthropic collaboration in Asia Pacific with an 18-month grant from the Hitachi Foundation. The research entailed assessing 12 successful instances of philanthropic collaboration in China, Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, India, and Australia. These case studies were aimed at providing a means to understand how these corporate-NGO partnerships work and to cast light on the philosophy behind corporate philanthropy. Researchers also considered corporate dynamics, NGO dynamics, and corporate-NGO dynamics. Local NPOs, in conjunction with JCIE staff, conducted the case studies. Research was conducted from September 1997 to March 1998. Researchers prepared draft reports for an August 1998 Bangkok workshop, and final versions of the papers were presented at a June 1999 conference in Tokyo.

The final reports were published in 1999 in the volume listed below, which is directed at a broad audience, from business and government to NGOs and other relevant sectors. Both English and Japanese versions are available.
