Strategic Giving

India has added more than 100 million donors since 2009, and more than a third of current donors expect their donations to increase over the next five years. Corporate Social Responsibility spending is also estimated to unlock as much as INR 20,000 crore annually for the Indian social sector. Donors are also making a gradual yet significant shift away from traditional giving, towards a more strategic approach to philanthropy that emphasizes on being better aware of sectors and relevant organizations, measuring impact, leveraging existing resources, and collaborating with multiple stakeholders to achieve maximum impact. Dasra believes that to unlock this massive potential, it is critical to build structures that enable donors to give more and give smarter.
