Who can donate: Any Indian citizen or institution can donate. 80G benefits are available. CSR funds cannot be donated to Ignite. We have applied for FCRA registration. Once that process is complete we can receive funds from foreign individuals and institutions.
Is there a minimum threshold amount that I can donate: We prefer large donations in the 1 crore plus region for our project funding grants. However, for sustainability initiatives we can accept smaller amounts in the INR 25 L range. Please contact us if you have any other questions in this regard.
What is the process to Donate to Ignite: Please contact us at email@example.com and we will send you all the details you will need to process a Donation
What benefits do Donors get: Apart from 80G tax deduction we also engage donors by sending them periodic updates on the progress of projects at Ignite. We arrange an Annual meeting for Donors to meet some of our Investigators and learn about their scientific progress directly. As such the process will give Donors a ring side view of developing science and they may consider opting-in as investors in any technology that results from the scientific work being done. The ownership of the technology resides with the institution where the work is done and we will facilitate the interactions that can potentially lead to a licensing or technology transfer arrangement.
