eBay is the world’s largest online marketplace with more than 108 million active users globally, where practically anyone can buy and sell anything. GivingWorks is a CSR initiative started by eBay. It connects you with the causes you care about by offering many convenient and trusted ways to give to your favorite nonprofits while on eBay. Now BITSAA is also enrolled into Giving Works program. You can contribute as minimal amount as $1/$5. And everything you give is tax deductible and you will receive a receipt for the same.

eBay sellers and buyers have raised over $300 million through Giving Works since 2003. Sellers can give a portion of their sale to BITSAA, buyers can add a contribution to their total at checkout, and anyone can make an immediate contribution with their PayPal account. The amount raised thus will be engaged in charitable and educational activities for setting up endowments, creating scholarships, rewarding teaching and research and promoting the development of resources at Pilani, Dubai, Goa & Hyderabad campuses.

Some of the key achievements of this initiative include the fact that eight nonprofits in the US have raised more than $1M with eBay GivingWorks. Recently a power lunch with Warren Buffett raised 2.1 Million, the highest amount raised which benefitted the Glide Foundation.
