SPOTLIGHT : Celebrating 13 years of Giving

We celebrated our 13th Anniversary with our key stakeholders – NGOs partners, benevolent donors, committed payroll giving corporates, alliance partners and our distinguished board members on May 30, 2013. Members of our stakeholder communities shared their experiences as we revisited our 13 year journey. 

It was an opportunity for us to thank each and every one of you who have been instrumental in this journey. And as our Chairman Mr. N Vaghul said that one thing that binds us all is the “passion of making a difference” and what we have achieved today is a baby step. He mentioned that though GiveIndia is now 13 years old, in terms of growth potential it feels like a baby of 13 months that has a long way to go to fulfill our vision. 

collage-giveIndiaThis journey of 13 years would not have been possible without the support of our corporate partners. Sharing his views on Payroll Giving Program Mr. Sudarshan Jain, CEO Abbott Healthcare said, “We started working with GiveIndia in 2005 for the Payroll Giving Programme and we find that our employees feel a great sense of pride by making a difference through their contribution. They also feel deeply engaged with programmes such as payroll giving that go beyond their day to day activities.” 

Mr. Maninder Juneja, Head Liabilities represented another of our Payroll Giving partners ICICI Bank. Quoting Mr. Juneja on GiveIndia as platform for philanthropic exchange, “We have 6500 employees from ICICI enrolled in our payroll giving programme with GiveIndia. GiveIndia provides us a convenient, credible and transparent platform, leading to no constraints in giving. In fact we have now extended our programme to our customers as well.” 

Being associated with GiveIndia since 2008, Ms. Gazala Sheikh, Senior Manager, CSR - HR HDFC Life shared how GiveIndia help set a giving culture at HDFC Life. And how a ‘Credibility Alliance’ seal of approval gives trust and confidence to donate to the NGO.
Enhancement of Payroll Giving Programme- Monthly Donation Option


Would you like to chose the programme to support when you sign in to the Payroll Giving programme? Do you want to support the same child every month year-on-year?

So now NO accumulation of funds! NO logging into account to donate funds! NO need to remember passwords. Welcome to an easy convenient and engaging way for your employees to contribute via Payroll Giving.

GiveIndia has conceptualized a new programme – the Monthly Donation Option (MDO). Under this programme, an employee selects the exact programme that he/she wants to contribute to while signing up on the programme. Within 15 days, a specific beneficiary is assigned to the employee towards whom his/her contribution will go every month. The employee will receive an update on the beneficiary every 6 months.

We will be reaching out to you in a phased manner to get all your employees onto this new programme.
