The Indonesian Philanthropy Association (PFI) is a non-profit and independent institution that is intended to advance philanthropy in Indonesia so that it can contribute to the achievement of social justice and sustainable development. PFI originated from the initiative of a number of individuals and institutions / non-profit organizations that have pioneered the network of `Philanthropic Strengthening Initiatives' in Indonesia since 2003, and have agreed to continue and institutionalize their joint activities in a non-profit and independent association. PFI is intended to advance the interests of philanthropists, both from the giver sector, managers / intermediaries, and beneficiaries, on the basis of the principles of partnership, equality, diversity, justice, universality of philanthropy and nationality of Indonesia.
The ideas of this PFI establishment are:
That respecting, loving and helping fellow human beings has become the basic instinct of every human being as a social being. All the teachings of the religion encouraged him. From the cultural treasures of various tribes and community groups in Indonesia, we also learn that social charity or philanthropy has long been an adhesive element that maintains the integrity and harmony of a community;
That some people in Indonesia have achieved extraordinary economic progress. But on the other hand the social and economic disparities between people and between communities are also getting bigger;
That the blurred portrait of social and environmental issues in Indonesia today requires philanthropy as a potential that exists in the human series and especially the Indonesian nation, to be transformed into something more meaningful.
That efforts to develop philanthropic potential for sustainable development in Indonesia are not possible for individuals, or by one or two groups or organizations. The challenges of the problem are too large, the absence of institutional infrastructure and money support policies, all of which encourage the need for effective and directed efforts from various components of philanthropic actors and supporters in Indonesia to gather, unite and strengthen the movement with civil society in facing challenges social, humanitarian and environmental development in this country.
The creation of true solidarity based on humanity to realize social justice and sustainable development.
Increasing the number and quality of philanthropy in Indonesia as a means to strengthen the role of civil society in the country in social, humanitarian and environmental development through strengthening institutional infrastructure and developing philanthropic space and non-profit sectors.

Gender justice. Philanthropy is carried out paying attention to different gender needs and trends and placing them in an equality perspective.
Universal and non-partisan. Philanthropy does not discriminate between the background of the recipient and the giver and is maintained so as not to become a political tool for the interests of certain groups or streams.
