How India Gives is an ongoing longitudinal study conducted by the Centre for Social Impact and Philanthropy (CSIP) at Ashoka University in collaboration with the Worldpanel Division of Kantar. The first edition of the report, How India Gives, 2020–21, was a pioneering attempt to describe household giving patterns across geographies, socio-economic groups, demographics, and forms of giving. Drawing from a survey of households in a panel comprising approximately 81,000 households, it provided a comprehensive, and national-level picture of household giving in the country.
The latest report, ‘How India Gives, 2021–22’, is the second report in the How India Gives series and captures trends in giving by Indian households in 2021–22. Like the previous report, the current report also shows a high incidence of charity in ‘cash’ and ‘in-kind’. Besides presenting the incidence, market size, recipients, motivations, and other trends of giving in 2021–22, it compares the changes in the giving patterns between 2020–21 and 2021–22.
Motivations and Barriers to Household Giving in India is the first attempt to gain a nuanced understanding of the factors that might motivate and inhibit Indian households from donating to religious and non-religious organisations. The study is the first chapter in the series of proposed studies on perspectives on giving in India. Focusing on the North and South regions of the country, the report presents key motivations which drive household donations towards religious and non-religious organisations. It also covers deterrents which inhibit donations and the underlying reasons behind them.
