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 >>

As I start winding down my engagement with @AshokaCSIP, John Hagan’s perspective resonates strongly. How much of your bandwidth is devoted to taking on the biggest challenges of our time? What makes your heart sing? https://twitter.com/SSIReview/status/1554155049626083332
