OP Jindal Inaugural Lecture Series on Philanthropy

January 5, 2011

Just a quick note about the OP Jindal Inaugural Lecture Series on Philanthropy, taking place this week in Mumbai.  The lecture series, offered by JSW Foundation, is dedicated to exploring the nature of philanthropy, current trends in philanthropy, and strategies to ensure efficient and Aeffective philanthropic practice.

Pierre Omidyar, founder-chairman of eBay, delivered the keynote address on Next Generation Philanthropy, talking about the intersection of business and philanthropy.  Anand Mahindra, VC and MD, Mahindra & Mahindra was also in attendance.  He, apparently,  was asked to defend his $10 million gift to Harvard.  You can find his reponse and more about the lecture series here.
