Many of us would like to make a donation to charity but don’t know how to start. There are many challenges involved in the donation process, from finding a legitimate nonprofit organisation to determining if online giving is safe. GiveIndia is fully aware of these challenges and recognizes that donors have limited time and energy for finding and donating to Indian NGOs.
In fact, GiveIndia’s original goal was to make online giving easy and quick. We have created a comprehensive charity checklist. These five tips will help you, the NGO and the beneficiary reap the maximum benefits.
1. Are they a trustworthy, legitimate and effective NGO?
Many legitimate NGOs work diligently and use donated funds fairly. There are exceptions, and it’s often difficult to determine if an NGO’s online presence is trustworthy or not. It is also not practical or economical for donors to determine whether the charity to which they are donating is good.
GiveIndia is committed to resolving the problem. Before being profiled, every NGOs on our platform goes through a rigorous due diligence process. This is done to bridge the trust gap between nonprofits and donors. It is always recommended to check with NGO or campaign which is running, WhomToSupport is the most important point to be considered before making any donations
They are also routinely reviewed. Donors are encouraged to access information about their operations and outcomes. You can find out more about GiveAssured and GiveIndia’s promise of honouring your trust .
2. What are the urgent needs of the charity?
While all charities do valuable, important work in their sector, not every NGO is equally well-known. Larger, more established NGO’s have better access to donors and therefore are more well-funded. It is important to ask if the organization requires funds now before you make a donation to an NGO in India. Is it urgent?
These questions can be answered by GiveIndia. To identify beneficiaries and charities that are particularly in need, the labels of charities include tags such as “Under funded” or “Extreme need”.
These labels are also explained in detail. These are programs that have not been adequately funded. They are often doing outstanding work but are unable to provide the financial support they require. People in extreme need are often socially excluded. They lack basic necessities because they live in areas that are underserved or stigmatized.
3. Who will your donation benefit?
It is crucial to know who benefits when you donate to charity. While it may seem easy to assume that your donations will go to the people you want to help, this is not always the case. If the NGO has many projects and is large, it might be necessary to make sure you donate to the project you wish to support. It may be necessary to inquire about how much of your donation they retain if you donate through a third party platform.
GiveIndia recognizes that donors desire to make the most positive impact possible when they give to NGOs in India. Information about beneficiaries and how donations are distributed is readily available. Each campaign includes specific information about the programme and beneficiaries. GiveIndia makes sure that your donation reaches 90% of the NGO you choose by keeping fundraising costs to a minimum of 10%
4. Is the charity’s payment method secure?
It is extremely convenient to give online. Online giving eliminates the need to travel distance between charities and donors. This allows them to support causes that they care about, regardless of their location.
Online donations can be difficult to make secure. Unsafe payment methods can cause financial losses for donors, as well as depriving charities and beneficiaries of vital funds.
GiveIndia takes these concerns seriously and maintains transparency and accountability over the security measures taken to protect donors’ data. GiveIndia ensures that donors don’t give sensitive information to indian NGOs by setting very strict standards for credit card security.
5. Is there any tax benefit to donating to NGOs?
While charitable donations are inherently selfless, they can also benefit donors. Giving can make donors feel happier and provide tax exemptions that can help them get monetary benefits.
These charity donation tips will help you ensure that your donation goes to those in greatest need. GiveIndia has all the boxes checked so you can begin your charitable journey with us. Make a difference in the lives of those in need by making a donation today through India’s most trusted platform for giving.
