NGO Fundraising Workshops 

We conducted a series of Fundraising workshop for our partner NGOs in 8 cities across India. We had 239 participants from 183 NGOs. Here’s what some of our Partner NGOs has to say.

"Learned a lot to make more effective feedbacks and clarity on donation options. Through the workshop we got face-to-face interaction with GI team.

It gives me confidence to work in our target areas and to utilize advanced technologies to report the feedbacks and to serve the beneficiaries effectively and to reach out more.

We are very thankful to GiveIndia to conduct this workshop in Hyderabad. It was very useful to us.

The presenters knew their job and did it well.

It helped improve our knowledge with GiveIndia resources; Understand GiveIndia better and tap opportunities available.

A lot to pack in and absorb but worth it. Very impactful; we are proud of our association with GiveIndia.

Content development and presentations were exemplary”.
