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 conduct a very in-depth Due Diligence and verification of each projects/organisations before empanelling them with us. This is done by a team of high-level evaluators specialising in this field for 25+ years. Moreover, advisory services, site visits, detailed expense verification, budget preparations and detailed know-how of each empanelled project allows only genuine and authentic programs to be listed on our platform.

And we don’t stop there – Post donation, we provide you a periodic fund utilisation monitoring report to know exactly how your money is being used and the impact it’s creating.

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 transparent we are right from our first meetings both with the social-cause organisation and the donors. We charge absolutely NO (zero) fees from the NGO/ social cause and a very minimal one from the donors, that may vary slightly depending on the quantum of support and the time taken for the Due-Diligence process. Trust us, it’s much lower than almost all other platforms, INSPITE of the depth in which we conduct the whole verification to monitoring process.
Every organisation onboard has undergone an in-depth verification process (that takes days) before empanelment. Moreover, our post-donation and fund utilisation reports ensures you know exactly how your money is being used. We understand the worth of your hard-earned money and make sure it is being used to its best capacity.
Our team carefully determines key benchmarks for fund utilization, monitoring and progress. We also conduct base-line end-line surveys where necessary and provide periodic (mostly quarterly) reports to the donor as well as the advisory board about progress made on each initiative. You may also visit the program funded by you and see first-hand how your contribution is changing lives.
Yes, Indian citizens are eligible to receive an 80G tax exemption certificate once you have provided all the government required details. Section 80G of the Income Tax Act provides for a deduction for donations made to certain charitable institutions or funds (all those on Let It Count platform have valid 80G certifications). The deduction is available to individuals as well as companies and can be claimed on the amount donated to eligible institutions or funds.

Your contribution needs to make YOU happy, so please go ahead and make that donation.
However, we would like to share how projects on Let It Count may differ:

  • (a) All our projects are unique, sustainable, scalable and have a life changing impact on the lives they touch
  • (b) Each project onboarded, works on the root cause and at a grassroot level with a clear strategy and impact measurement.
  • (c) All our projects are genuine and verified in-depth from all aspects of Finance, Legal, Strategy, Impact and so on which one may not otherwise do for organizations identified directly.
  • (d) And lastly, our philosophy of ‘Teach a man how to fish, rather than giving him a fish’ ensure each project makes a lasting impact, uplifting our county at large.
