Donors said they are most likely to give money because they believe they can make adifference, and because they want to help those less fortunate than themselves. Amongst those who donated in the past 4 weeks, the typical (median) donation wasR500. The most common method of donating was via a donation box in a supermarket/shop,which 40% of donors had used. Six in ten people surveyed have volunteered in the past 12 months (61%), 49% havedone so for a church or religious organisation, 45% for an NPO/charity and 45% for acommunity organisation.

This report on Indian philanthropy is based on a study that started in 2016. It is part of a larger study in other emerging economies to review the current state of philanthropy and what role it is playing in the world. This is the first report from the study, which we hope will eventually form part of the Philanthropy Bridge Series.The study does not attempt to address the acknowledged lack of comprehensive and reliable data on philanthropy in India. Rather it aims to throw light on the current state of Indian philanthropy through conversations with people who have been trying to promote, support or strengthen different areas of philanthropy. This includes various forms of giving by the wealthy; social justice philanthropy, self-funded activist movements and community philanthropy; and giving by individuals of modest means.

In addition to highlighting the quantum of funds channeled to the development sector in India and trends in giving, this year's report goes beyond and focuses on the evolving approaches that givers are adopting to maximize their philanthropic impact. While there is no defined route to becoming an evolved giver, there are various pathways one can choose from to be more effective in their philanthropy. In this report, Dasra and Bain define a framework that outlines the donor journey, provides insight into the various pathways and stages of giving and demonstrates what philanthropists can do beyond increasing the amounts of giving to be more effective. It also showcases a broad segmentation of giving approaches, highlights some common challenges givers continue to face and presents a few practical tips to overcome them. In addition, it illustrates case studies of various philanthropists including Rati Forbes, Amit and Archana Chandra, and Hemendra Kothari, who have traversed various parts of this journey.
