Invitation to do Doing Good Index 2020

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Management and Sustainable Development Institute (MSD) would like to invite you to complete a short survey as part of the Doing Good Index (DGI) 2020, a groundbreaking study geared towards helping the social sector in Asia grow and thrive.

  • Closing date for the survey: March 31, 2019

(The survey should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. It does not have to be completed in one sitting. And your responses and identity will be kept strictly confidential.)

This survey will ask for your opinion and experiences on factors determining success for organizations like yours, including the ability to register as a legal entity, to raise funds, to be tax-exempt, and to seek government contracts.

Your insights will also be invaluable in highlighting how to best address challenges such as difficulty in raising funds, bureaucratic red tape, and a talent shortage. The survey aims at positioning and making suggestions to develop an environment for SDOs to provide social services more effectively and sustainably. SDOs include unlimitedly the organizations delivering social services for non-profit such as Associations, Social foundations, Charity foundations, International and Local NGOs, Social enterprises…

The survey will contribute to Doing Good Index 2020 by The Center for Philanthropy and Society (CAPS). The overall findings will be published and shared with you and other stakeholders, including government and donors. Ultimately, the DGI hopes to facilitate positive outcomes such as increasing trust, confidence, philanthropic giving, and professionalism in the social sector. The first DGI, published in 2018, was very well received and is available at

We welcome your participation. Please feel free to forward this link to other relevant organizations for more chances to share mutual knowledge and create better values for development of SDOs.
