This NGO has updated its website and changed links. Following please find its new presentation:
GiveIndia is a donation platform that allows you to support a cause of your choice from about 200 NGOs that have been scrutinised for transparency & credibility. GiveIndia does not raise funds for themselves, GiveIndia helps you donate to other NGOs. GiveIndia lets you choose exactly how you want your donation to be used.  GiveIndia then provides you with a feedback report so you know how you helped to change a life.  The organisation ensures that at least 90% of your contribution reaches the NGO you support (as against the average of 40% for the NGO sector).

To promote efficient and effective giving that provides greater opportunities to the poor in India …
Vision: 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.

Our Beliefs and Approaches:

  • Sacrifice – we believe that every individual must ‘give till it hurts’, demonstrating the willingness to share one’s fortunes with those less privileged.
  • Deserve our needs – We believe that we need to earn our keep, rather than assume it is as a right. We need to give first and then ask in return.
  • Adding value – We believe that we add value only when we do something that no one else is currently doing, or when we do it in a better way.
  • Passion – GiveIndia believes that working with a ‘burning desire’ to make a difference, is the greatest motivator to do something meaningful.
  • First Principles Approach – GiveIndia believes that we must do things because they make sense to do, and not simply because that is how everyone else does it. Blind faith is the enemy of all innovation.
  • Focus on the poorest – All that GiveIndia does is directed towards improving the lives of our ‘real customer’- the poorest of the poor.
  • Transparency and accountability – As ‘trustees’ of tax payer resources, we believe in being proactively accountable and transparent in all that we do and to all our stakeholders.
