GiveAway is an Indian public-benefit enterprise which has built a global crowdsourcing platform focused on channelising product donations to the needy.

We are a product based crowd funding space for social causes, mainly focused on providing access to online infrastructure to the deprived individuals and establishments. As a crowd funding platform our USP is our collaboration with varied corporates, bringing them onboard for the right campaigns.

The term crowdfunding is defined as, “the process of obtaining needed services, ideas, or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people, and especially from an online community, rather than from traditional employees or suppliers”.

At Giveaway, one can source donations in-kind for various social causes. Any organisation or an individual can become a verified entity with us, and can run their campaigns, inviting contributors across the globe.

GiveAway basically has three main entities,

Corporates: Since, Giveaway is based on in-kind donations, we have successfully associated with different corporates across sectors, to efficiently materialise various contributions and to facilitate the fulfilment of campaigns.

Contributors: They are the individuals who contribute to various campaigns through their donations.

Campaigners: They are the Giveaway verified organisations and individuals who run various campaigns .
