New Fund raising tool
One of the most effective tools for NGOs to raise funds for themselves is iGive on GiveIndia. How can you use it?
  • To raise funds for a particular cause or project, for example, if your NGO needs to buy computer equipment or other one time purchases.
  • On the occassion of your organisation's birthday or founding day, set up a page and invite your all your supporters to make a small donation.
  • Ask a donor or volunteer to celebrate a special day in their lives like a birthday or anniversary by setting up a page to benefit your NGO.

For more information on how iGive can help your organisation and for assistance in setting up an iGive page, please contact

Here is a sample for you to have a look at.
