First Mumbai Giving Circle meet on 29th May, 2010

Mumbai Giving Circle meet on 29th May 2010We, at GiveIndia understand that apart from a credible and transparent due-diligence process, an ability to create a larger impact at the grassroot will help you to enhance and engage in your giving. Hence, the Mumbai Giving Circle has been formed to give an opportunity to engage directly with NGOs and other like minded individuals to pool resources together and create a greater impact.

Over a 3 hour session, NGOs will present details on their organization, work and a very specific funding need. Multiple donors can pool resources together and complete the funding requirement of a SINGLE project.

As most funding requirement are significantly larger compared to donation options on our website, the Giving Circle provides an opportunity for multiple donors to pool resources for a SINGLE project.
