Why India Giving Network

India is home to over a million NGOs, but much of their work is not fully known outside. In addition, it is not easy to identify the NGOs credible enough to receive a donor’s money.

In the last decade, India has witnessed the birth of institutions that have put in place norms, tools and processes to increase transparency and accountability of the voluntary sector. They work with NGOs to improve effective and efficient utilization of resources and transparent donor reporting. These intermediary organizations also provide a range of services to donors to identify high need areas and make high impact donations and grants through a variety of giving mechanisms structured to suit every type of donor. There are similar organizations in the United States that facilitate giving to India.

There are many who wish to contribute to impact the lives of the poor in India but lack of information and intermediation has been a barrier to giving.

India Giving Network is designed to make giving to India easy, efficient and transparent.
