"GIVE turned out to be a great find for us. We had been grappling with vague good sentiments, but not knowing exactly what to do or where to start. They helped us clarify and articulate our intentions, resulting in a practical plan for effective and meaningful community involvement. They have demonstrated a rare combination of sensitivity to business considerations and expertise in effective philanthropy. Any company wanting to convert good intentions into a workable yet idealistic community initiative will definitely benefit from GIVE's services." JERRY RAO, Chairman & Managing Director, MphasiS BFL Ltd.
