Contribute to iVolunteer’s research


As announced during the iVolunteer Awards on September 27th, iVolunteer is launching a country-wide research, the first of its kind, focusing on recent trends in volunteering in India. Through testimonies form individual volunteers, NGOs, and corporate leaders, combined with multiple surveys and an analysis of the literature, the study will establish a comprehensive overview of the volunteering sector in India.

What differentiates volunteers form non-volunteers, and regular volunteers from occasional volunteers? What makes employees engage within their company’s volunteering programme? How can organizations increase the impact of their volunteers? What are the constraints for individuals? NGOs? Companies? Schools?

These are a few of the questions we wish to answer. To do so, we are gathering your opinions and experiences through a survey. We will study your responses and the analysis will be part of our upcoming report on volunteering trends in India.

Make your voice heard

The survey will take you approximately 10-15 minutes, and it is open to volunteers and non volunteers alike. All information collected will be kept confidential and used by iVolunteer only.Please help us by sharing the survey with your friends, family and colleagues.

For more information about our research, please write to [email protected]

Thank you!

Project Goodbook – Survey for Volunteers & Donors

We are students of Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology. We are currently developing a platform to help prospective volunteers and donors to explore the myriad of NGOs available in the Indian scene. On that end, we would be grateful, if you could forward the following surveys to people who have either volunteered or donated in the past for their feedback and their experience in exploring various NGOs.

Click here for survey form for Donors

Details of the platform: The platform, currently codenamed ‘Project Goodbook’ will be a social network of sorts for various volunteers and donors to easily explore the various NGOs currently working in the fields of their choices. The platform will allow donors to easily donate and track the receipts of their donations. The volunteers can volunteer for various organized events by the NGOs and the platform will also allow NGOs to find sponsors for their events as commercial organizations can make accounts to sponsor various events. We are currently looking for features to include in our platform so as to make it fruitful for the users of the platform.
