5 reasons why no NGO can afford to miss Impact Guru’s Tax Saving Challenge 2017


All of us would agree to the fact that giving should preferably be selfless, but it is always a bonus to have an incentive attached with it. And in this season of tax file ups, what better incentive than a tax exemption in lieu of every good and meaningful deed done!

Attention! Exemptions upto 100% under section 80 (G).

Impact Guru- India’s largest crowdfunding platform – has launched a 3-month bumper tax-saving challenge to give nonprofits that are fundraising for a cause, an absolutely priceless opportunity to tap into as many donors as possible.

And here are 5 reasons why you can’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity-  

 1. Be recognized for your efforts


Tax Blog- Legitimacy


Recognition is always important for an organization that is working hard to serve the society. But only an organization which tends to all the legal terms and conditions can take advantage of tax benefits and exemptions under Section 80 (G) – which means donors will have to responsibly choose the cause and the NGO they wish to donate to. Come onboard with us – and become an instant hit with a large base of donors across the nation when crowdfunding.


2. Leverage existing social media outreach:

Participate in our tax-saving challenge and reach out to maximum no. of potential donors by leveraging our already existing pan-national social media reach on all leading mediums from Facebook to Linkedin. So, it’s time to use this to your advantage while fundraising for a cause.

Celebrate the Joy Of Giving Week with Impact Guru!

The 7th Joy of Giving Week is here to help spread happiness by acts of giving all over India. Last year millions of rupees were raised through 1,000 events organized in 200 places all over India. At Impact Guru we are celebrating all of October as the Joy Of Giving Week. And need your support to change lives and provide opportunities to the less privileged.

Over the years, this festival of giving has become a ritual for a lot of people. NGOs, Corporates as well as schools and colleges throughout the country spend time to organize wonderful events! Whether it is a collection and redistribution of items, money donations, skills or training, it represents a great opportunity to federate people around a good cause and spread the joy of Giving among Indians. Giving is already such an integral part of our culture.

Help us spread the #JoyOfGiving!

There are two ways in which you can help:

>Participate in our #JoyOfGiving contest! A simple and fun way of giving back to your favourite NGO. All you need to do is take a picture or short video of you doing something good and share it on social media using the hashtags #ImpactGuru #JoyofGivingWeek.

Yes! It’s that easy.  And of course, no contest is complete without a Prize. The winner receives a Rs. 5000 voucher to use on our website to support a cause of his/her choice. We have listed several NGOs working on a wide range of social issues; from child education, women empowerment to rehabilitating the homeless. So join this #JoyOfGivingWeek on social media to support a cause that you’re passionate about. Dates of the contest: October 2 to 31.

>The second activity aims at giving a BIG shout-out to all the NGOs, corporates , schools and colleges, which are making great efforts to make the Joy of Giving Week a great success.

We love what Bosch India is doing! It is celebrating the entire month of October. The associates give time and effort for twenty plus different activities that spanned from career counseling, cleaning the city, taking children to museums and malls, visiting old age homes, afforestation drives, books and clothes donation drives. Bosch Associates in Bangalore and Coimbatore will clock in close to 7000 hours of Volunteering during this month. BRILLIANT!

NGO’s like Blind People’s Association India has taken the opportunity to collect 20 other NGOs to invite their donors to an evening of music and gourmet food, all the while raising funds for their causes.  This grand event called “Food For Change” was organized this year on Gandhi Jayanti 2nd  October, 2015.

The colleges are not behind, Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management (TSCFM) facilitated a workshop to create awareness about using crowdfunding as a great tool for community service and
drive social change. Next week onwards, through Youth Social Responsibility Fundraising Challenge students at TSCFM will participate in a unique competition to support and enable nonprofits. Through the month-long fundraising competition, students will compete in teams of 2 to raise funds for select nonprofits on our platform. The challenge is designed in such a way that it incorporates components of technology, communication and entrepreneurship to create a holistic learning experience for students.
