Indonesia Philanthropy Association (Filantropi Indonesia) was born in 2013; it was initiated by individuals and nonprofit organizations who were involved in the Strengthening Philanthropy Initiative network in Indonesia. They agreed to continue and institutionalize their activities together in an association.
Indonesia Philanthropy Association is an independent nonprofit organization, established to enhance the philanthropy activities in Indonesia, which aims to contribute to social justice and sustainable development programs. Filantropi Indonesia was founded by individuals and nonprofit organizations, who since 2003 have taken steps to develop a network called Initiatives for Philanthropy Empowerment in Indonesia. They agreed to continue the work and put the activities into an organization for an independent and not-for-profit purpose. Filantropi Indonesia was established to accommodate interests from philanthropy stakeholders, from the donors, intermediary, or recipients of gifts; all done in a spirit of partnership, equality, plurality, justice, philanthropy universalism, and Indonesian identity.
The notions behind the establishment of Filantropi Indonesia are:
- Respect, love and helping our fellow human beings have become the basic instinct of every human being as a social creature. All religious teachings also advise it. From the wealth of different cultures and ethnic groups in Indonesia, we also have learned that social generosity or philanthropy has long been the glue that keeps the elements of unity and harmony within a community.
- Some communities in Indonesia have achieved remarkable economic progress. But on the other side, the social and economic gap between people and between communities are also getting bigger.
- The dismal portrait of social and environmental issues in Indonesia today requires philanthropy contribution that exists in each and every Indonesian, to be transformed into something more meaningful.
- The effort to develop the potential of philanthropy for sustainable development in Indonesia cannot be done by an individual, or by one or two groups or organizations alone. The challenges are too big. Institutional infrastructure and supportive policy are still lacking. Effective and focused efforts of all components of philanthropy in Indonesia are needed to put together, unify and strengthen the movement together with civil society to face the challenges of social development, humanity and environmental protection in the country.

PRINCIPLES OF PHILANTHROPY
Philanthropy gives access to those who need resources in order to improve their efforts in meeting their needs independently.
Every philanthropy stakeholder is required to uphold the plurality that exists in the society: culture, religion and belief, ethnic, perception, etc.
Philanthropy needs to pay attention to the needs of different genders with the principle of equality.
Universal and Non-partisan
Philanthropy does not discriminate against the backgrounds of the beneficiaries, and must not be used as a political tool for certain groups or interests.
The interest of the nation shall be above the interest of individuals or groups.
