Donors meet at Banglore
On the 21st of July, 7 GiveIndia donors got together for an evening cup of coffee at Bangalore's Barton Road Center on M.G.Road. It was fun evening filled with alot of exchange on ideas and experiences about GiveIndia and philanthrophy in general.
The group appreciated the opportunity to meet up with others who were also keen to take their philanthrophy forward. After a fruitful 3 hour discussion, we left setting the agenda for next time's meeting - which would include a visit to one of GiveIndia's NGOs followed by a chatty cup of coffee. The group also expressed interest in helping GiveIndia withverification visits in and around Bangalore. If you're in Bangalore and keen to join this group, do write to info@giveindia.org and they'll keep you posted on next time's meeting and the planned NGO visit.
