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: The dearth of information about India’s philanthropy and social impact ecosystem impedes strategic decision-making and healthy sector debate.


We work to create and curate credible, accessible data and knowledge products that inform sector strategy and action.

Networks: A vibrant civil society requires opportunities for sustained dialogue, strategic advocacy, and collective action toward achieving Sustainable Development Goals.


We work to provide independent, non-partisan platforms that facilitate building sector vision, voice, and norms.

Capabilities: Funders and NGOs have expressed a clear need for quality programmes aimed at building, leading, and governing sustainable institutions for social impact.  


We work to develop emerging leaders and strengthen 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 >>

Speaking from philanthropic funder perspective, Geeta Goel, @DellFdn country director, says #SocialStockExchange is an innovation that could benefit all types of nonprofits; agrees more capacity-building is needed to explore this tool and #StrengthenCivilSociety

In #SocialStockExchange webinar panel discussion now, @chetnavsinha recommends implementing recommendations in a phased manner to build confidence and ensure process isn't burdening or disadvantaging smaller NGOs.

"The recommendations of the #SocialStockExchange cover 5 areas- new avenues for fun raising, encouraging vital institutions, standardised framework for measuring social impact, fiscal & tax benefits, & a capacity building fund.” Our MD, Roopa Kudva in today’s webinar on SSE.

"The working group has come with a range of recommendations to enable fund raising for organizations which work towards achieving social welfare objectives." Amarjeet Singh, Executive Director, @SEBI_India in @AshokaCSIP & Omidyar Network India's webinar today.

CSIP Director @ingridsrinath credits #SocialStockExchange report and other efforts to #StrengthenCivilSociety — in context of addressing "the perfect storm" of the current crisis, which is putting huge economic pressure on NGOs "even as demand for services are skyrocketing."
