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 >>

#CivilSociety is that critical third pillar of the samaj-sarkar-bazaar (society-government-market) triangle. Without it, no society can function. @idr_online

Thanks for the shoutout @BenBellegy! Fantastic to connect with other #philanthropy #academics and #data enthusiasts to #LiftUpPhilanthropy @wings_info

Interesting start for the first Central Asia civil society conference. Kyrgiz people saying what they think about civil society "it's everyone of us, a space where people come together with common values, a key component of a democratic society“

"If we are serious about people having the power and dignity to be in control of their own destiny...we have to acknowledge these power structures & find ways to change them through losing control." #ShiftThePower https://t.co/iAZeDOCczm

'The question, of course, is what will it take to build such an ecosystem?' @AshishDhawanCSF succinctly spells out the role of #philanthropy in doing so. #WiserGiving #impact #nonprofit #scale
