Nonprofit Registration Process

Registration Process for Nonprofits

At Impact Guru, we work very hard to make it a very safe platform for our donors to donate to their favourite causes. We believe in being very transparent and thus work with the best non profit organisations in the country. This helps us maximise impact and serve our community with utmost passion. 

In order to achieve this, we have to proactively conduct due diligence on all the nonprofits who would like to list on Impact Guru and raise money for their programs. The process includes review of all key statutory compliances like incorporation document, PAN details, Section 12A registration, Section 80G registration, among other things. We also look into the organization's track record, scale, transparency, community outreach, impact and utilization of funds.
