The Silicon Valley Community Foundation recently published a research paper on the philanthropy within the Indian American community of Silicon Valley. The report looks at the roots of giving in India, a history of the Indian American community in the U.S. and then describes the vision and values of Indian American philanthropists in Silicon Valley.
According to the report, “these newly-wealthy individuals, many of whom arrived in the United States with few assets, have not forgotten their Indian roots. Many donate large amounts of their personal wealth to support a variety of causes in India, such as education and healthcare, in order to support others in creating the same opportunities for personal development and success that they themselves had, either in India or after arriving in the U.S. Others focus on the growing Indian American community around them with an eye toward preserving Indian culture and tradition for future generations, as well as benefiting the wider community.”
