Daan Utsav is a pan-India social giving event where many people come together and help the underprivileged society members through their time, skills, money, or anything that they are willing to part with. Earlier called ‘Festival of Giving’, Daan Utsav focuses on inspiring individuals and companies to give something back to the society.
In 2015, over 5 million people participated from 110+ cities and towns in India via 1100+ events (volunteering, awareness, donation, fundraising, etc.) for Daan Utsav. This should give you an idea of the scale at which the event is conducted. If you are an NGO or social organization, you can also create and list your own event on the Daan Utsav portal in order to help patronages find you.
