About iCONGO:
Over the past 8 years the founders of iCONGO have been training and mentoring various NGO leaders and fundraisers for creating fundraising strategies and also handholding them for implementation (some feedback is appended below). We at iCONGO teach on the basic foundation that “fundraising is not just about MONEY, HONEY!!” (as is misunderstood by most in India). It is about developing a credible ecosystem to involve people for the cause. In fact, most matured fundraising countries term fundraising as DEVELOMENT and fundraisers are called DEVELOPMENT PROFESSIONALS, because PEOPLE IN FUNDRAISING are NOBLE PROFESSIONALS who DEVELOP a community movement for addressing any cause.

Earlier this year we founded iCODEVGURUKUL and under its aegis we conducted the first specialist mentoring for development workshop on “Planning , selling and managing fundraising events”. The Unique proposition was that for the first time it was “Practical fundraising gyan by specialist gurus for creating supporter involvement” and not just gyan by people who don’t have hands on experience or people from overseas who do not understand the Indian ecosystem which is very different from the US or European matured fundraising ecosystem.

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan's S.P.Jain Institute of Management & Research (SPJIMR) one of the top ten B-schools in the country. They have been proactive in participating in activities of relevance to the Indian society beyond MBA and similar programs. The Centre for Development of Corporate Citizenship (DOCC) is one such pedagogic initiative.

It was so refreshing to have such an out of the box presentation after having
attended so many mundane and systematic workshops. I really mean it I had
attended so many of them!1. It was very innovative, 2. It made us think
differently, 3. I liked the concept of “getting to feel for the cause, actually getting attached to the cause and not merely funding! Just like that without knowing the work”. This helps in gaining partners for future not necessarily MONEY! Anjali Chaudhry, Advocacy Coordinator

This is brilliant. Just the stuff one needs. Meena Vaidyanathan, Head, External Communications, HCL Technologies Ltd.
