Rahul Bhardwaj of the Toronto Community Foundation

Rahul Bhardwaj

I love Canada’s Charity Village website and newsletter – those of you interested in the nonprofit sector here should definitely sign up.

This week, their cover story features SAPP friend and advisor (and former lawyer), Rahul Bhardwaj, President & CEO of the Toronto Community Foundation.  In his interview, Rahul assesses the state of the nonprofit sector today, describes a Toronto that is becoming increasingly divided between city and suburb, and discusses the role of immigration and visible minorities to our great city.

Also this week, TCF is releasing this year’s Vital Signs Report, just in time for the mayoral race.  Vital Signs is a progress report on the state of the city on a lot of metrics.  I hope you’ll check out the report and the interview!

    Will be interesting to know the size of the philanthropic contributions of Indian leaders in North America. I see many successful Indians here in New York from all walks of life – professionals, blue collar workers and government personnel. It’s interesting to see how they are making an impact in North American not only through their talent and skills contribution, but also nonprofit involvement.

    Thanks for your note, Caleb. There is unfortunately not a lot of data about the giving practices of Indian-Americans or Indo-Canadians. That is something I’m trying to work on in my research and so are some others. We agree – the Indian diaspora in New York is very strong and must be making an impact. Keep checking back for more information!
