Indian American Community Engagement Survey


Indiaspora is working with Dalberg Advisors, philanthropy groups, media organizations, community nonprofits and advocacy groups to conduct the first comprehensive survey regarding issues of importance to the Indian-American diaspora and the diverse ways in which we give back as a community.

Please take 10 minutes to complete the survey:

Please note that all data will remain completely anonymous and confidential, including email addresses, and will not be shared with Indiaspora, Dalberg Advisors, survey partners or any third-party vendors.

Who are Indian diaspora?

We define members of the Indian diaspora as first- and second-generation individuals of Indian descent (i.e., individuals born in India and/or of Indian citizenship, as well as their children, who now live outside of India).

When will the results be published?

Preliminary results were unveiled with Dalberg Advisors and our survey partners at the Indiaspora Philanthropy Summit at Georgetown July 17.

Comprehensive results will available this fall in a report published with Indiaspora and Dalberg Advisors.

In addition to better identifying which issues are of importance to the Indian-American community, we also hope the information will be used by charitable giving and other nonprofit groups to better understand and serve their specific constituencies in our community.
