Indian Americans volunteer at nearly double the national average but give substantially less financially. This means the Indian American community is leaving significant social impact on the table as Indian Americans are among the highest earning groups in the US and have tremendous influence here and abroad. This is stated in the first Indiaspora-Dalberg Community Engagement Survey, which serves as a tool to understand the philanthropic behavior of the Indian American community at large.
