Social Justice Philanthropy

Approaches and Strategies of Funding Organizations

By Sukhadeo Thorat, Gail Omvedt, Martin Macwan

Social Justice Philanthropy unravels the approaches, strategies, and methods used in India by different types of philanthropic organizations in addressing the problems of society. Such philanthropic organizations include community-based national and international organizations, corporate sector organizations, family-based organizations, and those run by the government. While the book brings insights into the priorities that these organizations accord, it especially looks into the question whether these organizations address the issue of social justice and support the efforts of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that take up the issue of social exclusion in India - associated with caste, untouchability, ethnicity, and gender - through projects that deal with disadvantaged groups, such as Dalits and tribals. Not much research has been done in India on social justice philanthropy related to caste and ethnic groups, and their gender and class dimensions. This study provides insight into this neglected theme. The book will be of great use to NGOs, funding organizations, researchers, and others working in this area.
