Abstract

This paper attempts to relate how the level of information disclosure affects the amount of aids through

an explanatory study. The disclosure of aids allocation and utilization information plays an important role

for non-profit organizations to attract more aid while enhancing accountability and public trust. This paper

specifically focuses on two main types of disclosures, qualitative and quantitative disclosure, and attempts to

relate the effect of information disclosure on donations’ decisions. Choosing appropriate amount of disclosure

and targeting the right mix of qualitative and quantitative disclosure is, thus, a valuable strategic decision

that allows charities to attract more aids, boost accountability, and gain public trust. The study particularly

uses transparency, reliability, frequency, auditing, standardization, and accountability as collective proxy for

measuring information disclosure. The study finds that information disclosure has significant impact on foreign

aid. The study suggests strict and integrated policies for information disclosure both at government and nongovernmental

level.
