Spotlight on South Asian philanthropists in the news

November 17, 2009

Suresh and Sudhakar Shenoy

1.     U.S. Congressman Gerald E. Connolly honored brothers Sudhakar V. Shenoy and Suresh V. Shenoy of northern Virginia, founders of tech company IMC, for their philanthropic efforts.  The Shenoys are community leaders through volunteer and philanthropic activities with the American Heart Association, Youth Aids, the American Cancer Society, United Way, the American-India Foundation, the National Capital Region American Red Cross, and the IIT Heritage Foundation.

2.     The Simon School of Business at the University of Rochester received a $1.5 million gift from the Wadhawan family of India to establish an endowed professorship in management for a scholar focused on India.   The press release says, “The gift is the first of its kind from an Indian family to a top-tier U.S. business school.”
