The world's most charitable countries, for the purposes of this page, give the most money to help the needy of their societies and others through public (government) donations.

Official development assistance by country in absolute terms in 2012 (April 2013)[edit]

To qualify as official development assistance (ODA), a contribution must contain three elements:

  1. Be undertaken by the official sector (that is, a government or government agency);
  2. With promotion of economic development and welfare as the main objective;
  3. At concessional financial terms (that is, with favorable loan terms.)

Thus, by definition, ODA does not include private donations.

According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the countries giving the highest amounts of money (in absolute terms) are as follows:[1]

  1.  United States – $30.46 billion
  2.  United Kingdom – $13.66 billion
  3.  Germany – $13.11 billion
  4.  France – $12.00 billion
  5.  Japan – $10.49 billion
  6.  Canada – $5.68 billion
  7.  Netherlands – $5.52 billion
  8.  Australia – $5.44 billion
  9.  Sweden – $5.24 billion
  10.  Norway – $4.75 billion
  11.   Switzerland – $3.02 billion
  12.  Denmark – $2.72 billion
  13.  Italy – $2.64 billion
  14.  Belgium – $2.30 billion
  15.  Spain – $1.95 billion
  16.  South Korea – $1.55 billion
  17.  Finland – $1.32 billion
  18.  Austria – $1.11 billion
  19.  Ireland – $0.81 billion
  20.  Portugal – $0.57 billion
  21.  New Zealand – $0.6 billion
  22.  Luxembourg – $0.43 billion
  23.  Greece – $0.32 billion

Official development assistance by country as a percentage of Gross National Income in 2012 (April 2013)[edit]

To provide an alternative perspective, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development also lists countries by the amount of money they give as a percentage of their gross national income. The list includes international giving through official channels that qualify as Official Development Assistance, and national charitable giving. This list is as follows:[1]

  1.  Luxembourg – 1.00%
  2.  Sweden – 0.99%
  3.  Norway – 0.93%
  4.  Denmark – 0.84%
  5.  Netherlands – 0.71%
  6.  United Kingdom – 0.56%
  7.  Finland – 0.53%
  8.  Ireland – 0.48%
  9.  Belgium – 0.47%
  10.  France- 0.45%
  11.   Switzerland – 0.45%
  12.  Germany – 0.38%
  13.  Australia – 0.36%
  14.  Canada – 0.32%
  15.  Austria – 0.28%
  16.  New Zealand – 0.28%
  17.  Portugal – 0.27%
