India-based crowdfunding platform for NGOs, medical, and personal causes Impact Guru announced on Tuesday it formed a partnership with U.S. and UK-based non-profit crowdfunding platform, GlobalGiving. According to the duo, this new partnership will enable vetted Indian NGOs and social enterprises raising funds on Impact Guru to offer tax benefits to international donors that are located in the U.S. and UK when they donate towards social causes using GlobalGiving’s technology.
“Having spent over a decade outside of India prior to starting Impact Guru, we can relate to the desire of Indian diaspora to give back while obtaining local tax benefits, and their concerns around transparency of Indian NGOs. Impact Guru is thrilled to be partnering with GlobalGiving to address these gaps, thereby making us the platform of choice for crowdfunding by Indians globally.”
John Hecklinger, Chief Network Officer at GlobalGiving, also commented:
“GlobalGiving is excited to partner with Impact Guru to help Indian NGOs transact with donors in India, the US and the UK on a single giving platform. This partnership will help GlobalGiving, Impact Guru and the global social sector to understand more about how donors and NGOs interact locally and globally.”
Impact Guru previously formed a partnership with Fundnel, a Singapore-based private investment platform. Impact Guru also formed a partnership with GlobalGiving last fall to promote the joy of giving during the 2016 Daan Utsav
