We are India’s first academic centre focused on enabling strategic and robust philanthropy for greater social impact. 

Building a robust ecosystem

 

Our work addresses three critical gaps in the support ecosystem for philanthropy and social impact in India.

Knowledge: There is a dearth of organisations studying philanthropic and social impact sectors. Decision-making and sector debate is impeded by lack of data.


Our research provides credible, accessible data and knowledge products that inform sector strategy and action.

Networks: Opportunities for sustained dialogue, strategic advocacy, and collective action on issues affecting the philanthropic and social sectors are limited.


Our convening provide independent, non-partisan platforms that facilitate building sector vision, voice and norms.

Capabilities: There is a clear need for, and lack of, quality programmes that strengthen sector capabilities on building, leading, and governing sustainable institutions.  


Our programmes nurture emerging leadership and build sector capabilities on strategy, scale and governance.

We envision robust and resilient philanthropic and social impact sectors, recognised for their contribution to India’s economic, social, political and cultural vitality. Read more about our vision and theory of change here >>

Yes! And, perhaps even more than "allow" we could say "encourage/support" or even "expect" grantees to shift their strategies. A revised program strategy can be an indicator of continuous learning and innovating. https://t.co/i2eENtSmUL

"The nonprofit sector is not like the private sector, because we have something called #CollaborativeAction. We don't need to merge with or acquire other organisations." - Geetanjali Jha Chakraborty of @armmanindia at #DPW2019
