What Is Crowdfunding? Start. Share. Collect. Change.

Thousands fight for their lives from fatal diseases and unforeseen medical emergencies every day. Families are often left drained of all their savings due to insufficient insurance coverage and are forced to take loans at high interest rates. Many also have to risk delaying or stopping treatment due to lack of funds.
At Impact Guru, we believe saving lives is a service. With the help of millions of donors online, who step up to generously support friends, colleagues and strangers with contributions, we are trying to reach each and every individual across India to ensure that no life is ever lost due to lack of money.

Crowdfunding vs Other healthcare financing solution

Crowdfunding on ImpactGuru.com
You can start a fundraiser on your own in less than 5 minutes
You can fund the entire amount within days or even hours
Insurance
Assuming you do have a health insurance, it can still take weeks to sort the paperwork, before you can claim the insurance amount.
Loans
The submission of the required documents tied to the loan approval can take months
Crowdfunding on ImpactGuru.com
As long as you are able to prove that your medical emergency is genuine, you can raise funds on ImpactGuru.com
Insurance
Health insurance can be extremely confusing because of the difference in terms and conditions in policies. Many critical illnesses including cancer are not covered in most basic plans of insurance companies
Pre-existing medical conditions are not covered by insurance
Loans
Amount of loans you can get are significantly restricted by your credit history, age, eligibility, documentation, ability to pledge collaterals, etc
Crowdfunding on ImpactGuru.com
We understand medical treatments such as cancer, transplants and surgeries etc can cost up to ₹50 Lakhs or more so there is no limit to the amount of funds you can raise, as long as you have the medical estimations to support it and the networks to raise it
Insurance
You can only claim the amount covered within the policy
Most policies have a cover of up to ₹5 Lakhs only
Many policies have high copay and deductibles implying that you need to pay out of pocket first before you claim the cover
Loans
It is not always possible to get a loan to cover all your medical expenses
The maximum loan someone can get for healthcare expenses is typically Rs 2-3 lakhs. Such loans are only possible to secure if you DON’T have a critical illness
Crowdfunding on ImpactGuru.com
Setting up a fundraiser is absolutely free. The funds you raise are donations so there is no need to payback liability
Impact Guru charges only a nominal fee for fundraising
Also, if you raise nothing, you pay nothing
Insurance
You need to pay monthly or annual premiums and can claim only the coverage amount during a medical need
Average health insurance coverage of Rs 5 lakhs in India is very low for most critical illnesses
Loans
You need to pay back your loans in monthly instalments / EMI with interest rate often exceeding 15%
Banks / NBFCs usually reject loans for healthcare expenses due to risk of default and death

No problem! We follow a flexible model where you can keep what you’ve raised without being penalised for not meeting your goal.
We understand that many campaigners, especially medical causes, cannot wait until the fundraiser closes and often need to make payments to hospitals in parts. Unlike many platforms, on Impact Guru, you can request for partial or full fund withdrawal before your fundraiser closes! Go to your dashboard, click on “Withdraw Funds”, enter the amount you wish to withdraw and upload the documents required (bank details and scanned copies of PAN and Aadhar cards).
Crowdfunding is new to many patients and their families and while we have put in years of work to build a platform that is user-friendly and intuitive, we do understand new campaigners might feel confused at times. In that case, your dedicated crowdfunding expert will always be available on call to guide you to reach your goal. Our platform has been used successfully by students, labourers, working professionals, housewives, teachers and even farmers to raise money - we’ve worked hard to ensure that no matter where you come from or what you do, you are able to raise funds easily.
