Frequently Asked Questions
Anyone – Indian or foreign national – willing to donate to a unique high-impact social cause that is listed on the LIC platform. We have a mix of FCRA & non-FCRA approved projects allowing you to choose between causes based on where you are contributing from.
Unlike most other fund-raising platforms, we do an in-depth due diligence and verification of each project before empanelling them with us. This is done by a team of experts specialising in this field for 15+ years. Moreover, advisory services, site visits, detailed expense verification and budget preparations with the project owners allows for only genuine and authentic fund requests to be listed on our platform.
And we don’t stop there – Post donation, we provide you a fund utilisation report and periodic reporting to know exactly how your money is being used.
Though there is no set amount of minimum donation, being a boutique firm giving in-depth verification and reporting services, we do intend to minimise the number of donors per project. Hence, we are happier with donations of a larger ticket size to ensure a lesser donor spread and better reporting management.
We take pride in how clear and transparent we are right from the first meeting. We charge 0 fees from the NGO/ social cause and a very minimal one from the donor, that may vary slightly depending on the size of the program and the time taken for the diligence process. Trust us, its much lower than almost all other platforms.
Besides a pre-donation vetting of each NGO/ program, our ongoing post-donation and fund utilisation reporting structure ensures you know exactly how your money is being used. We understand the worth of your hard-earned money and ensure it is being used to its best capacity.
Our team carefully determines key benchmarks for fund utilization, progress and
monitoring. Program teams provide periodic reports to the donor as well as the advisory
board about progress made on each initiative. In addition, there will be an option to make
video calls from time to time to see how the beneficiaries are benefitting from your
donation. You may also come and volunteer with the organisation you have donated to.
