This chapter discusses philanthropy in the Kingdom of Jordan. Although Jordan is not a wealthy country by world standards, the philanthropic sector in the country is thriving and the private sector is fully engaged. Private philanthropic giving in Jordan has grown into a multimillion-dollar industry, one that is undergoing a vigorous transformation. The institutionalization of philanthropy in Jordan is rapidly increasing, with many philanthropists thinking in terms of long-term social change as opposed to charitable giving.
