New-look Philanthropy Age unveils a new model for Gulf giving

The latest issue of Philanthropy Age is now available, featuring both a striking new design and stories of the people and agencies disrupting giving in Saudi Arabia.

In interviews with long-time philanthropists Khaled and Olfat Juffali, as well as an exclusive with King Khalid Foundation head Princess Banderi bint Abdulrahman AlFaisal, we shed light on the Saudi movers and shakers changing the shape of philanthropy in the GCC’s wealthiest economy.

The issue also boasts an exclusive interview with billionaire activist Mo Ibrahim, on why good leadership is key to reversing Africa’s stalled growth, and a sit down with Dubai’s Abdelmonem bin Eisa Alserkal to hear what drives the arts and culture patron. We also take a look at the actors seeking to make waves in Islamic finance by applying fintech skills and innovation to help bridge a $15bn global shortfall in aid funding.

Also in this issue: meet the artists road-tripping across America to bring the stories of the Arab world to America’s heartlands, the Lebanese social enterprise using trash to help refugees get back on their feet, and gain insights from our second annual Arab Giving Survey on why, where and how people in the GCC give – and what might make them give more.

Philanthropy Age, which was awarded ‘Editorial Team of the Year’ at the prestigious Digital Magazine Awards, is available in English and Arabic, in print and digital formats. Please visit to learn more.
