The training includes face to face weekly video conference calls, online classes, reading assignments, karate training videos and homework. A team leader is formulated as a guide.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you doing this?

Charity isn't business, people are making it a business and that's messed up. We were shocked to see there isn't anyone giving a free fundraiser service. So we decided to do something about it.

What about the payment gateway fees?

The payment gateway fees is 2% for local and 3% for amex or any other international payments. We are in negotiation with the payment gateways and have plans to make this a 100% free service.We are using razorpay as our payment gateway.

Do I need to submit any documents to get listed?

Yes! We aim to list only the people who we manually verify and have legit documentation of their cause. This way, we aim to eliminate any possible fraud.

Do I get tax benefits?

Yes, The Income Tax Act, 1961 encourages charitable deeds and thus under Section 80G, it offers donation tax benefits to the donors. Under Section 80-G of Income Tax Act, you are eligible for income tax deductions only for the amount which has been donated. You will be able to see the tax benefit listings on our site soon.

How do you fund the platform if you don't take any fees/show ads?

We currently fund the platform from our pockets, but in the future, we plan to use a tipping model to fund the platform costs.
