A. ABOUT SAVENISHABD
SaveNishabd is a free fundraising platform for individuals, charities and organizations to raise money for animals in need of food, shelter and medical treatment. The platform has various measures set in place to ensure the authenticity of fundraiser campaigns. The campaign organizer is notified each time a donation is made on his/her campaign. Donors are notified about the progress of the fundraiser through periodical updates on the beneficiary or on the activity/project for which funds are being raised.
Most people use crowdfunding to raise money for the welfare of needy animals in their vicinity or for larger causes of crowdfunding for charities/NGOs, medical expenses, volunteering, emergencies, natural disasters, documentaries and animal rescue projects to name a few.
B. FOR DONORS.

You may even contact the campaign organizer with the button available on the campaign page for information regarding their campaign. We make sure that the funds are transferred to the beneficiary against relevant documents, bills/invoices, and that an update is posted on the campaign page to maintain trust and transparency.
No, never. Donors are charged only the amount they choose to donate, and that's it!

SaveNishabd believes in merit. Based on a algorithm that factors in the number of visitors, number of supporters, social media shares, funds raised & conversion rates, the successful campaigns will appear on the 'Trending Now' page by default.
As a crowdfunding platform with technological features, our primary goal is to enable you to reach out to your friends, family members, acquaintances and even strangers. We promote some fundraising campaigns as per an algorithm that considers certain factors in determining which fundraisers are to be promoted. These factors are as follows:
- Amount of funds raised
- Number of Supporters
- Social media impressions
- Measurement of the activity on the page
Once your fundraiser is approved, you can submit the bank account details and photocopies of the following documents of the beneficiary:
- PAN card
- Address proof - Aadhar card (front and back) or Passport (first and last page) or Election card (front and back) or Driver's license
- Bank statement/ cancelled cheque/ 1st page of passbook
- Bank name, branch name, IFSC code, account number and accountholder's name should be clearly mentioned on the bank statement or cancelled cheque
- The address proof should be valid as of the submission date and mention the address in full
- The name mentioned on all the documents should be exactly the same
- The documents should be easily readable and not blurred or cropped
The platform is totally free. This means you can start a fundraising campaign without any charge. However, as the platform needs your support to expand its reach, a standard fee of 5% will be charged on the total donation received by the fundraiser (Individual or NGO), as a campaign success fee.
Free fundraising will ensures that you receive maximum of funds from the donations made. We also believe it will encourage more people to support various needs and causes without any hesitation.
