Indian crowdfunding platform Impact Guru has partnered with GlobalGiving to attract more U.S. and U.K.-based donors.

The partnership with Washington D.C.-based GlobalGiving allows overseas donors to support Indian organizations and claim charitable-giving tax incentives in their own countries.

Impact Guru’s CEO Piyush Jain said the strategy will make it easier for the Indian diaspora to give back home.

India has the largest diaspora in the world, according to the United Nations, with 16 million people living outside of the country.
