Abstract

This research measures the efficiency of waqf funds managed by philanthropic institutions in Indonesia using the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) approach over the 2013-2021 period. The unit of analysis consists of nine philanthropic waqf institutions. In the measurement of efficiency using production approach, the study takes human resource expenses, operational costs and fixed assets as inputs and collection and distribution of waqf funds as outputs. The findings indicate that the efficiency of philanthropic organizations in handling waqf funds varies from year to year between 2013 and 2021. The study also notes that the Covid pandemic has no substantial impact on the efficiency of the waqf institutions. Interestingly, regional institution clusters are more efficient than mass organization and national institution clusters.
