GiveIndia, a high-profile Indian charitable institution, and the Indian-American philanthropic organization Indiaspora, announced July 5, 2022, a long-term partnership to  “amplify philanthropic giving from institutions, foundations, and high-net-worth individuals from the United States to social impact initiatives in India,” a press release said.

Indiaspora works to get greater philanthropic giving from the Indian diaspora, with a focus on giving to India. Between 2020 and 2021, Indiaspora, along with its partners, mobilized $15 million in funding to support COVID relief efforts both in India and in the United States, according to the press release.

“We are delighted to join hands with GiveIndia, given the significant and complementary strengths of both organizations,” Indiaspora’s Founder and Chairman of the Board MR Rangaswami is quoted saying in the press release. “Leveraging Indiaspora’s network of prominent Indian diaspora leaders and GiveIndia’s network of on-the-ground nonprofit partners, we look forward to accelerating global philanthropic giving to India.”

Since its inception, GiveIndia’s community of more than 2 million donors and over 250 partners have supported more than 2,500 nonprofits, serving more than 15 million people across India, the press release said.

“We are excited about the opportunities that this partnership with Indiaspora brings,” said Atul Satija, CEO of GiveIndia. “US philanthropists played an invaluable role in our COVID response work over the last couple of years. This partnership allows us to bolster these existing relationships and significantly scale our support for India’s social sector.”

The partnership will operate as GiveIndia in the US and will aim to support over 500 nonprofits in India through philanthropic contributions from more than 200 partners over the next three years, the press release said.
