Ways to Donate!

IDRF puts power, not charity in the hands of those in need. Your simple act of compassion can provide quality education to numerous poor children, healthcare to slum dwellers, toilets to below poverty line families in villages, micro-credit to poor rural women for small businesses to earn a livelihood, nutritious food and supplements to severely malnourished kids and anemic women in remote hilly areas and so on. By keeping our fundraising, administrative, and management costs to a bare minimum of 5%, we ensure that 95% of your donations lead to maximum impact for the beneficiaries.

IDRF is a United States-based, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity.  (EIN – 52-1555563). Please click to see our Tax determination Letter
