India’s Private Giving: Unpacking Domestic Philanthropy and Corporate Social Responsibility
Since private philanthropic funding is not regularly identified and no data is being collected by States or the federal government, there is an absence of data on domestic philanthropy in India.
In order to shed light on how private domestic organisations provide financing to development in India, to examine how these private resources are allocated, and to identify the issues and geographical areas that are being targeted, OECD Development Centre undertook ‘India’s Private Giving: Unpacking Domestic Philanthropy and Corporate Social Responsibility’, a study that identifies the scope and scale of domestic philanthropy in order to assess how to unleash the potential of further partnerships in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
As survey partners, Sattva helped in designing and contextualising the study for the Indian philanthropic ecosystem and carried out secondary research, data collection, interviews and data validation for the report.
The study sampled 50 private organisations in India comprising of CSR, corporate and family foundations.

The event featured a presentation of the report followed by a panel discussion on the key findings. ‘Private financing for development in India: New ways to achieve Agenda 2030?’ examined the role of private philanthropy, Corporate Social Responsibility and corporate philanthropy in contributing to the economic and social development of the country.
