Project : Help partner NGOs register on donation platforms

Background :

Youth for Seva works with partner NGOs – whom it connects to volunteers who give their time.

As a principle, YFS volunteers do not raise money for partner NGOs – though they help with other aspects of fund raising – like designing brochures, websites, email newsletters etc. of the partner NGOs.

A useful  tool for raising funds is registering on donation platforms like Give India, Letz Change, Just Giving etc. This helps provide our partner NGOs with publicity for their work, and raise money.

 

Goal :

  • Make a list of donation platforms that are relevant to Indian NGOs.  This is not a small list, there are the known platforms and there are other platforms like CII that are not conventional donation platforms – but getting registered with them helps the partner NGOs.
  • Help partner NGOs register with a pre-screened list of online donation platforms.

Expectations from Interns :

  • Unlike many other internship options listed on this site – which need daily travel to the seva centers, a significant part of the work in this internship is something that can be done from home.Off course a certain number of meetings with partner NGOs shall be required.
  • Since the work requires getting the documentation of the partner NGOs in the format required by donation platforms – it is very well suited to students of commerce or those pursuing professional programs like CA, CS, CWA etc. though all are welcome.
