Bridgespan India collaborates with foundations and trusts, individuals, impact investors, and corporations (CSR) to start, expand, or reorient their philanthropy. We support donors and investors seeking to increase the impact and scale of their giving and make their philanthropy more strategic and effective. Our team also serves philanthropic collaboratives at the conception, design, and implementation stages.
Our primary areas of focus include education, health and nutrition, livelihoods, and urban financing and management. Additionally, we are experienced in water, sanitation and hygiene; land rights for the poor; and judicial effectiveness. Within each of these areas, we pursue our work with the goal of enhancing social impact and a passion to bring about equity of opportunity.
