Launch of a payment solutions platform for Fundraising on our website.

We incorporated a payment solutions platform for Fundraising on our website on December 26, 2017. For Indian donors, the process of giving a donation is now really simple. One can donate using a debit or credit card, do a bank transfer or even have a cheque picked up – just by filling in details on the Danamojo platform. The debit and credit card options will work for International donors too, but we recommend that these donors use the GlobalGiving option.

Do go to our updated Donation Page to see both options. For those in India, do try the Danamojo option. You will make a fresh start in helping medical students and researchers learn about searching for evidence, for 2018
