About Us

First Givers Club

 First Givers Club was founded in 2010 with the aim of building a unique and enriching platform of people looking to make a significant contribution to development in India. First Givers Club intends to facilitate the creation of a platform that will enable a meaningful dialogue through a consistent process of shared inputs and suggestions leading to a step change in philanthropy.

Through an annual summit and special events/seminars in the year, the members have a continuous opportunity to learn and interact with experienced philanthropists, dynamic social entrepreneurs and leading policy makers in the field.  The Club helps connect donors to social issues, to effective giving strategies, and to other like-minded philanthropists.



GiveIndia is a donation platform that allows you to support a cause of your choice from about 200 NGOs that have been scrutinised for transparency & credibility. Conceived by Venkat Krishnan, an IIM-A graduate in December 1999, GiveIndia is managed by a team of professionals who have earlier worked with various corporates and now have dedicated their careers to making a difference.

We do not raise funds for ourselves.We help you donate to these NGOs.

We tell you exactly where your money went and also give you proof of it through a feedback report(except in the case of donations through an iGive page).  We ensure that at least 90% of your contribution reaches the organization you support (as against the average of 60% for the NGO sector).

We have reviewed over 3,000 non-profit organizations from all over India to identify over 200 organizations that have met with the GiveIndia’s Listing Criteria. They work for causes ranging from child welfare and education to disability, poverty, and women’s empowerment to name a few.
