SPOTLIGHT: Giving Matters at Amdocs
amita-maheshwariFor 30 years, Amdocs has ensured service providers' success and embraced their biggest challenges. The global company uniquely combines a market-leading BSS, OSS, and network control and optimization product portfolio with value-driven professional services and managed services operations. With revenue of $3.6 billion in fiscal 2014, Amdocs' workforce of more than 22,000 serves customers in over 80 countries worldwide.

We had the pleasure of interacting with Mr. Anshoo Gaur, President and Head of Amdocs India. Mr. Gaur has been associated with Amdocs for around 8 years now and additionally as provided leadership to various strategic initiatives. It was interesting to know about various platforms adopted to promote giving culture in Amdocs.
At Genpact Giving is a way of Life

india-giving-challenge"At Genpact, giving is a way of life and Payroll Giving is a wonderful way for organizations to strengthen the culture of giving in our society. Give India has been a great partner for Genpact for 6 years now for our Employee Payroll Giving program in India : all of us want to give back to our communities in whatever way we can but don’t always have an easily available and robust option.

This program provides easy access to such a platform for our employees. They love the fact that the organization drives this so passionately, encourages them to make a contribution and work towards a higher goal. We believe that our people are our biggest asset and it is their passion that has led to the huge success of the program - 11,000+ employees participating ; 12 crores of social impact driven through their payroll donations for community projects over 6 years. We are delighted to be recognized yet again as the highest contributor raising 76 lakhs in the recently concluded India Giving Challenge, Give India’s annual 6 week drive for corporates to mobilize large funds during the festival season. Nearly 70% of this has gone towards Education & Employability projects, the key focus of our CSR program, and we look forward to creating much more impact in this area as we go forward."

Bidding adieu to Dhaval
india-giving-challenge After 8 years with GiveIndia, 4 of them as our CEO, Dhaval Udani, has decided to step down.
During the last 4 years, Dhaval played a stellar leadership role, taking GiveIndia to the next level. He oversaw GiveIndia's growth from about 60,000 donors channeling Rs20cr per annum, to over 150,000 donors, channelling over Rs50cr per annum and impacting over a million lives every year. Along the way, GiveIndia became the largest organisation in India, in terms of individual donations raised, as well as disbursed to NGOs. And it continued to operate at costs of fundraising far below its peers.

He started off as a volunteer in 2006, while still working at AT Kearney, grew to be our CTO. He then joined GiveIndia full time in November 2008, helping scale up the Online Giving platform from about Rs2cr p.a. to 7cr p.a. in 2 years, before taking over the mantle as CEO. He played a crucial role in the 2008-2010 period along with Ujwal Thakar, then CEO of GiveIndia, as the organisation transitioned out from being a founder driven organisation to a professionally governed and managed organisation.

Having made an immense contribution to GiveIndia, Dhaval has now decided to move on and pursue other interesting opportunities in life. There is no doubt in our mind that he will be sorely missed. However, as an Organisation, we respect his decision and wish him all the very best in his future pursuits. His last working day was 30th December 2014. The entire GiveIndia team, wishes him well in all his future endeavour.
We are happy to share that Dhaval's successor has been identified, and will join GiveIndia latest by April 1, 2014. He is the Chief Marketing Officer of a company with over $1 billion in revenue, and we are sure that, like Dhaval (and Ujwal before him), he will help take GiveIndia to even greater heights. We will make a formal announcement about him, including a more detailed profile by end of January.

For the moment, though, we would like all of you to join me and the entire GiveIndia Board in thanking Dhaval for his phenomenal commitment, dedication and hardwork, the passion with which he pursued the goal of making GiveIndia not only the largest, but also the lowest cost channel for individuals to support credible organisations in India. And in wishing him a very bright and successful career, and a rewarding personal life filled with joy, and the knowledge that he has done more for society in his 8 year journey with GiveIndia, than most of us can aspire to do in our lifetimes!
