Empower your Indian, US, And UK donor networks with GlobalGiving + Impact Guru
What is this partnership and why is it important?
A year ago GlobalGiving conducted a Needs Assessment of our Indian nonprofit partners to see how we can better serve their needs. A major trend in this assessment was a desire for access to INR donations on the GlobalGiving website. GlobalGiving takes feedback from our community seriously, so we wanted to act in response to this interest. At the same time, our Country Consultant was starting discussions with Impact Guru’s team, and a partnership was created. We tested this partnership with a joint campaign during Daan Utsav/The Joy of Giving Week. You can read about the outcomes of this experiment here.
Based on this success, we felt it made sense to find a way to lend greater support and create access to more resources for organizations in India. In order to better support our current and future Indian nonprofit partners, GlobalGiving has taken our partnership with Impact Guru to a new level. We're enabling US, UK, and Indian donations on a single platform with all the associated tax benefits, through an integration of GlobalGiving’s donation process onto the Impact Guru website.
What does this mean? It means an eligible organization can send their donors looking to give in USD, GBP, or INR to a single platform, impactguru.com, and benefit from those countries’ giving benefits. Interested in participating? Start your GlobalGiving application!
