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

Standard Chartered 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.

Please fill out this form, so that we can be in touch and help in your quest to raise money. You can use our iGive fundraising tool and make your participation have a greater impact.

Raise funds for your NGO during any sporting event through iGive!

Airtel Delhi Half Marathon

Over the past few years sporting events like marathons have taken the spirit of sports to new heights. Internationally, such sporting events have always been a phenomenon bringing together thousands of participants all across the world. But the most amazing factor is the emergence of these events as a platform to raise funds for charities.

Participation of thousands of athletes and publicity from media across the different sections make sporting events like the marathon a great opportunity to garner support and spread the word about your cause. As a GiveIndia Tier I listed NGO or Tier II NGO, you or your donors can raise funds for you by making the most of any such sporting event; without undergoing any further registration. Do also remember that as of October 1st, 2011, GiveIndia retains only 6.5% of all donations made through iGive pages.
