About Us

 

India has one NGO for every 400 people. However, only 9.3% of them file their income tax returns with the government. How do you find a trustworthy NGO to support?

HelpYourNGO was set up to bridge this gap between credible NGOs and donors who want to support their work. We are the only organisation in India dedicated to standardising financial information on NGOs to give donors a picture of NGO expenses. Our portal www.HelpYourNGO.com has listed 600 NGOs across 13 sectors and over 70 sub-sectors. Our website is used by donors wanting to donate amounts of Rs500 onward, High Net Worth Individuals (HNWI) and CSR clients.

To help NGOs raise their level of growth and evolution by providing the NGOs access to articles and guides on how to be better organized to handle the challenges of growth.

Ajit Dayal, the founder of HelpYourNGO, has leveraged his vast experience in capital markets to start this non-profit organisation. Ajit has been a pioneer in equity research in India and has been a catalyst in allowing Indian companies to raise capital from foreign institutional investors (FIIs). Over the past two decades, companies and partnerships set up by Ajit Dayal have helped foreigners invest over US$ 5 billion in the Indian capital markets

The investment recommendations made to the FIIs were based on research. This required building a database to capture information and analyse that data in order to help make a better investment decision.

Before investments were made on behalf of the FIIs Ajit analysed the companies and other factors such as:

  • The quality of the people running the company.
  • What did the company plan to do with the money it raised and was the money finally used for what it was supposed to?
  • Did the company have any wasteful expenditure and how did these expenditures compare with the competition?

I.V. Subramaniam (“Subbu”), the CEO of Quantum Advisors and its subsidiary Quantum AMC (“Quantum Mutual Funds”) and Rahul Goel, who runs www.equitymaster.com and www.PersonalFn.com are now using their past experience to help build HelpYourNGO

Pradeep Mahtani has recently been appointed CEO of HelpYourNGO. He has 23 years of experience in analyzing stocks in organisations such as Quantum Financial Services, Jardine Fleming/JPMorgan, ASK-Raymond James and Citigroup
