Members from the Indian American non-profit sector along with prolific philanthropists such as Sunil Wadhwani of the Wish Foundation & Deepak Raj from Pratham USA stressed on the need for giving back. Indiaspora partnered with Dalberg Advisors, to survey and examine the charitable habits and nuances within the Indian American community.

Keynoted by Swetha Totapally of Dalberg, the summit dove into this survey and its findings. One such finding was the tremendous amount of hours Indian Americans donated in terms of volunteering.
