At the onset, I would like to thank you for your interest towards charity at The Wipro Chennai Marathon (TWCM). Since 2012, The Wipro Chennai Marathon has helped over 100 NGOs from across Tamil Nadu associate themselves with the marathon thereby connecting with tens of thousands of runners that participate each year to support their charity efforts.
United Way envisions a society wherein individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, financial stability, and healthy lives. UWC helps donors identify the most urgent causes and enables them to support the most deserving NGOs working towards those causes across Tamil Nadu.
Let’s Live United and let’s help all around us Live healthy & Happy lives.
Process of identifying NGOs & Causes
UWC has a stringent due diligence process prior to on boarding an NGO as a beneficiary of TWCM. This includes all statutory compliances, project proposal formalisation, and capacity building. Once an NGO passes this due diligence process, they receive a crowdfunding page to help reach out to runners and supporters across the globe.
