CCPHI and The Center for Asian Philanthropy and Society (CAPS) in collaboration with Indonesian Philanthropy and Dompet Dhuafa held a Webinar: Dissemination of the Results of the 2020 Doing Good Index Survey on 7 September 2020. The event was attended by 70 participants representing the government, private sector, NGOs, media, educational institutions.
The event was opened by Sonny Sukada, CCPHI Executive Director, who introduced the CCPHI and brief information about DGI2020 Survey. The survey findings were presented by Ruth Shapiro and Mehvesh Mumtaz Ahmed from CAPS, who stated that the atmosphere of doing good in Indonesia is getting better, but there is still room to increase public participation, especially with the current Covid-19 pandemic situation so that Indonesia can get a better ranking on the next Doing Good Index survey.
The presentation of DGI-2020 was then responded to by Cecep Sulaeman, Head of Program and Reporting Division of the Secretary of the Directorate General of Social Empowerment, who represented Dr. Edi Suharso, Director General of Social Empowerment, Ministry of Social Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia, who explained the role of the government in encouraging collaboration and participation for social sector development. Hamid Abidin from Indonesian Philanthropy explained how tax regulations and incentives are considered not yet support philanthropic activities . Zainal Abidin from Dompet Dhuafa conveyed the high participation of the community in donating for charitable / responsive activities but still lacking for empowerment / prevention activities. In addition, institutions that receive funds also need to be more transparent and accountable. The event was moderated by Jalal, a strategic partner of CCPHI.
From the discussion of the CAPS survey findings and the presentation of the panelists, it can be concluded that there is a need for closer cooperation from all parties so that domestic regulations, tax incentives and social investment can help us all in facing unprecedented challenges.
