Run to raise funds for GiveIndia and double the impact of your donation!

Mumbai MarathonDo you want to increase the impact of your donation? Do you wish you could get your donation to do even more, so that you could:
Educate ONE MORE child
Provide vocational training to ONE MORE woman
Provide a cataract surgery to ONE MORE person

If yes, then raise money for GiveIndia during any of the marathons and increase the impact of your donation.  

How's that? All money raised will be used towards a Matching Pool which will be used to incentivise other NGOs and corporates to raise even more funds through the India Giving Challenge. In 2010, Rs. 65 lacs of matching money helped raise Rs. 2+ crores through 9,000 donors i.e. nearly 3x the impact of the matching amount. Learn more on how money in this Matching Pool was utilized.
