In 2015, Thailand ranked 19th in the CAF World Giving Index for the overall score of 48%.

TDRI's calculation, based on the National Statistical Office's Household Socio-Economic Survey, also found that Thai households are donating more and more money every year, amounting to more than 75 billion baht in 2014, or around 0.6% of the country's GDP that year. These statistics suggest that most Thais are kind and generous when it comes to giving money to others.
