Column : Philanthropy beyond philanthropy

Column : Philanthropy beyond philanthropy: "Philanthropy around the world is changing. Today’s leading philanthropists—from Pierre Omidyar to the Liechtenstein royal family—are approaching their philanthropy with an investment mindset. But instead of merely financial returns, they are evaluating overall societal returns associated with their activities. India can benefit from this next generation philanthropy as it transforms itself from a developing country into one of the world’s largest economies. Philanthropic investing can provide capital and expertise to the social entrepreneurs that will help drive this historic transformation."
