Interesting Links: Tarsadia Foundation, Bellagio Initiative and more!

August 17, 2011

I’m just back from vacation and catching up on my SAPP reading.  Here are some interesting links from the past couple of weeks:

  • The Tarsadia Foundation and family profiled in the recent issue of Essentials, newsletter of the Association of Small Foundations (hat tip to Sharmila for finding this one!).
  • ReSurge International recently profiled South Asian medical volunteer Nisha Chaudry, who is raising funds in honor of her birthday last month – you can pitch in too!
  • Charity Village has been doing a great series on hybrid organizations – or social enterprises that bring together business and nonprofit goals.  Read the first part here.
  • Be the Change Austin is on a roll!  In coordination with SAALT’s nationwide efforts to inspire community service each year around Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday in October, the Austin group just got Convio founder Vinay Bhagat as their keynote.  Sign up now for a volunteer project!
  • I was interested to read that The Rockefeller Foundation and several partners are launching “a global debate on the role of philanthropy in international development” with a major conference in Italy this November.  I hope that diaspora giving and particularly the role of South Asians in North American will be on the agenda.  Learn more at the Bellagio Initiative.
  • Finally, we appreciate PhilanTopic’s coverage of my recent article on South Asian philanthropy in Canada in The Philanthropist!
