We are part of this event since 2012. UWC serves as the philanthropic platform helping other participating NGOs which has a large credibility and established statuary requirements that one would require for disbursement of charities. All funds raised through the TWCM platform are channelized through UWC which is responsible for the usage details, accounting and providing tax exemption receipts to all donors.

The Wipro Chennai Marathon gives one an opportunity to experience the joy of giving. The event acts as a platform to galvanize support from the society towards donating for a cause…. United Way Chennai is the charity partner for the Chennai Marathon that is held in Dec every year. Over the years, we have received tremendous support from the people of Chennai. Different people choose different ways to contribute to society – some choose to donate money, some choose to raise money by reaching out to their inner circle, some volunteer their time and skills. TWCM provides a platform for everyone to find a perfect match in terms of the manner in which they want to give back to society.

 

This year we have chosen a list of causes in the Education and Healthcare space that one can contribute to. For each of those causes, we have tied up with one or more NGOs who will implement the program on the ground.
