About GiveIndia

GiveIndia is a non profit organisation dedicated to promote a "giving culture" in India. We aspire for a world where all of us come together to create a better and an equal world for everyone. GiveIndia is a ‘philanthropy marketplace’ that helps in bridging the gap between donors and NGOs in an efficient and effective way.

We respect your decision to donate, and understand that you want your contribution to make an impact. GiveIndia helps you with this by

  • Offering you a wide range of donation options from credible NGOs working on a variety of causes. GiveIndia lists NGOs after clearing them through stringent norms of credibility and accountability.
  • Sending you a feedback report with details on how your money has made a difference on every donation you make.

A strong "giving" culture where Indians donate 2% of their income every year to give the poor a chance. A vibrant "philanthropy marketplace" to ensure that the most efficient and effective nonprofits get access to the most resources.

GiveIndia does not accept donations for its work. We are treating the initial corporate grant we got as "seed money" till we reach self-sustenance. The best way to support us is to donate more through us.

GiveIndia ensures that 90% of your contribution reaches the NGO you have chosen by keeping fundraising costs at 10%.

GiveIndia retains a maximum of 10% in order to provide you with high quality support when transacting through us. This helps us recover a reasonable portion of our operating costs. This small donation that you give us reduces our dependence on grants and helps us in becoming sustainable in the long run to serve donors, NGOs and beneficiaries better.

We would require you PAN number if your annual donations across all programs cross Rs.50,000/-.

We welcome volunteers. GiveIndia is a ‘philanthropy marketplace’ and does not work directly with the underprivileged. GiveIndia needs support in marketing, design, verification visits, and many other areas. Please write to us at with the skill set that you have and let’s talk. If working on ground with the needy is what you are looking for, we recommend you contact one of the NGOs listed on our website.
