An anonymous donor has ensured that all NGOs can fundraise for free!

We are turning 3 this July and we couldn’t have asked for a better gift! Ever since we were incubated at the Harvard Innovation Lab in 2014, we’ve grown far and wide helping 1000+ Indian and international NGOs and causes raise more than Rs 329 crores so far to become India’s largest crowdfunding platform for social causes!

And now, a generous anonymous donation made to Impact Guru, coincidentally on our 3rd birthday, has ensured that we pass on the gift to you by completely waiving off all the fees from our side. We are using the donation to turn our birthday month into the Impact Month, where all the fees charged from our side will be absorbed with the anonymous donation.

This means that any Indian NGO can use Impact Guru’s platform and value added services for a whole month for no charges at all!

The Impact Month Challenge is a first-of-its-kind initiative where all fees (platform fee+ payment gateway fee+taxes)  from our side will be waived off for NGOs that raise a minimum of Rs.50,000 in 31 days from a minimum of 20 unique donors! All you have to do is start a fundraiser as soon as possible and you will automatically become a part of this offer!

The contest will run between
15 July 2017 - 15 August 2017
