DCF has several initiatives running at any given time, directed towards the creation of Centers of Excellence in specific Universities. A Donor may participate in any initiative of their choice, and target their donation towards that initiative. When DCF is actively supporting an initiative, it is likely that DCF will establish campaigns for funds development around these specific named initiatives. Currently, DCF is supporting three major initiatives.
Support for the creation of the Swami Vivekananda endowed Chair for Hindu Studies and the Center for Indic Dharma and Civilizational Studies at the University of Southern California (USC). The Swami Vivekananda Chair will be a community funded Chair.
Support for the creation of an independent Graduate School of Hindu Dharma Studies in Berkeley. California. This also includes the Adi Shankara Institute for the study of Advaita Vedanta and Sanskrit as well as the Swami Dayananda Saraswati endowed Chair for Advaita Vedanta.
