About this item

Philanthropy has a very long tradition in India. All practicing religions embody the idea of philanthropy and the concept ofdaan works across religions and cultures. This book provides unique sociological and empirical perspectives, contrasting what is happening in India vis-á-vis other countries. It documents various government policies that have influenced philanthropy and identifies successful strategies practiced by the general population as well as organizations.

With the help of case studies, narratives and interviews of philanthropists, the book examines the various forms—formal and informal, religious and secular, charitable trusts and foundations, NGOs and corporates, diaspora giving as well as social media platforms—that are shaping philanthropy.
