Our Vision

CSIP envisions robust and resilient philanthropy and social impact leaders and institutions, recognised for their contribution to the economic, social, political, and cultural vitality of India’s civil society.


To realise this vision, the Centre focuses on four goals:

1. Informing sector strategy and debate through credible, accessible data and knowledge;

2. Facilitating development of coherence, norms, vision, voice and collaboration by convening platforms and networks; 

3. Raising sector ambition, sustainability, and talent availability through capacity and leadership inputs;

4.  Enhancing sector credibility by driving evidence-based discourse, sector norms around transparency, and accountability standards.
