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 >>

#BigPhilanthropy can learn from their #partners. The report opens up avenues for serious introspection on the values they practice, from #governance + decision-making structures to setting standards for #accountability, #transparency & #humility, opines @ingridsrinath.

#BigPhilanthropy || "The report seems to accept as a fait accompli the stance that extending support to rights-based advocacy that may be looked upon unfavorably by the government poses risks that are best avoided", says @ingridsrinath at the 3rd Rural India Conference.

#BigPhilanthropy | "We are at the stage of philanthropic evolution where all philanthropy is seen as an unalloyed good. The nascency of this new wave of philanthropists and the lack of any significant incentives for philanthropy, this may be expected", says @ingridsrinath.

#BigPhilanthropy || "Money alone doesn't solve the problem", says Nimesh Sumati on his transformed perception after moving from corporate to philanthropy.
