Much has been learned in recent years about the current state of Indian-American philanthropy and related trends. Research indicates that Indian-Americans volunteer more and donate less than the general American public. Donations and volunteering benefits India, local communities, temples, and higher education in both India and the United States. This panel will explore potential for growth in Indian-American philanthropy and opportunities to expand the real impact per dollar spent or hour volunteered. After a brief summary of the state of Indian-American philanthropy, the panelists will share insights on building on existing strengths, role models in philanthropy, as well as successes and challenges from their own experiences.
