The Tata Mumbai Marathon holds its
prestigious reputation among the top 10 marathons in the world. It is not only
a platform to test an individual’s sporting excellence but also one of the best
fundraising platforms for participating charities. There are different run
categories at the TMM- 42 Km Full marathon, 21km half marathon, 10km, Dream run
( 6km), Sr Citizen run & Champions with disability run.
Over the years, the Tata Mumbai
Marathon has assumed a stature of eminence as the largest philanthropic
sporting platform in Asia. Each year, more than 300 NGOs participate in the
event to raise funds for the work they do. Corporates and individuals use the
platform as a way to give back to society and the less privileged. Philanthropy
through the platform is well regulated, hence serves as an assurance to
Since its inception, the event has
raised more than INR 317 crores benefiting over 641 charities, with funds being
used for causes ranging from arts, culture and sports to education,
environment, health, human rights and others, making the platform truly cause
agnostic. The 2020 edition itself saw INR 45.95 crores being raised, shattering
all previous records.
As the official philanthropy partner of
the event, United Way Mumbai (UWM) enables the participating charities to raise
funds by maintaining a cause-neutral platform. All funds raised through the TMM

United Way Mumbai features all the
registered NGOs for the event on its website non preferentially. TMM is a time
when hundreds of individuals, corporates and donors visit the UWM website
daily, as they look for causes and NGOs to support. Being featured on the
website is the best way to reach out to these prospective donors, and raise the
maximum possible funds through this platform.
Direct Donation on NGO Page:
On registering for the TMM, each NGO gets a unique personalized page on the United Way Mumbai's website. The page displays the NGO's appeal, contact details, the previous year's fund utilization (if applicable), the total amount raised, the fundraisers supporting the NGO, and the NGO's privilege level. The NGO page also features a donate button, allowing the NGO to receive online donations from their supporters on UWM website. 100% of the funds raised on this page are disbursed to the NGO as UWM
TMM reserves running slots across race categories for charity. These slots are exchanged for donations by the NGO, allowing runners a guaranteed entry to the event as long as they fulfill the event rules even after registrations close. UWM sets a base amount as a minimum donation amount per race category to maintain a level playing field for all NGOs. NGOs can then negotiate higher amounts directly with the donor on top of this base amount. The intent is to provide a means for NGOs to build new relationships
Any Individual (who may or may not be running at the TMM) can collect donations for an NGO by creating a fundraising page on the United Way Mumbai's website and reaching out to friends, family, and peers. The fundraiser pages contain various features that support and help the fundraiser raise funds efficiently.
Corporate Team is a category specially designed for companies who wish to field employee teams to participate in the Tata Mumbai Marathon and raise funds for their NGO (s). Besides passing substantial funds through CSR for various projects, this has emerged as an excellent employee engagement and team bonding activity over the years. Similar to the NGO page and Individual Fundraising Page, a donate button is available on the corporate page, where the corporates can raise funds through employee contribution in support of the selected by the corporate
Top-up Donations During Runner Registration
All runners are encouraged to make a top-up donation while registering for their run at TMM 2023. All registered NGOs are listed on the event website within two business days of completing their due diligence process. Runners can choose the NGO they wish to support or add a donation to a shared pool, which is later divided equitably between all NGOs.
Personalised Number on Bib
All runners get an opportunity to upgrade their bib number to a unique number of their choice against a fixed donation of Rs 5000 to any NGO of their choice on UWM website. This donation is an independent donation made to avail a special number bib. A donor cannot claim this event feature against any other donation made through any other medium.
Incentives and Grants
Page 28 includes a list of indicators that recognize and encourage the efforts of participating NGOs and provide a roadmap to leverage the fundraising platform of the TMM fully. Each of these indicators translates into a point for the NGO. These points allow NGOs to reach various levels known as Privilege Levels. Each level has privileges and incentives for the NGO, including capacity-building grants.
When NGO’s registration process is completed, bibs are allocated to the NGOs as per the following rules-
An amount has been fixed as per race
categories as minimum donation amount which means when a donor/runner wants to
avail a Charity Bib, that person will have to pay that much minimum donation to
the concerned NGO in order to participate.
Yes, the minimum donation amount
differs for some race category, for 10K and Half Marathon the amount will be
INR 12,000 and for other race categories i.e. Marathon, Dream Run, Champions
with Disability and Senior Citizen Run is INR 6,000.
The minimum donation amount is a fixed
donation amount which the runner/donor would have to donate to their supporting
NGO in order to avail a Charity Bib
Also, charity bib average of above INR
12,000 make the NGO eligible for one privilege point and the utilization of at
least 5 charity bibs earns a further point.
Any donor who has donated for the
Charity Bib are getting a chance to participate in TMM 2023 through general registrations
are closed. The registration is via the event organisers at the TMM website
where runner details need to be entered along with paying registration fees.
These are two separate processes. The event organisers have created a provision
for those people supporting causes to still participate in the event after
public registrations are closed. The fees applicable to the event organisers
would still require to be paid to them.
There is no upper-limit fixed for
charity bibs as the NGOs can request any amount they wish above the minimum
established as per the needs to the projects they wish to support via the funds
raised through their charity bibs.
TMM is highly prestigious and popular
event in Asia, given the prominence of the event, only around 50,000 people can
actually participate physically across run categories. The open categories
close quickly leaving the only possibility to participate by supporting an NGO
for the limited charity bibs they possess. Each NGO only has a fixed number of
bibs in the event and can choose to raise as much funds as possible through
them for their projects.
No, an NGO cannot convert your
allocated 10K and Half Marathon bibs but they can interchange Dream run Bibs
into Marathon, Sr. Citizens Run, Champions With Disability bibs if required.
Yes, you can. Multiple Dream Rub bibs
can be clubbed and a group can be created by an NGO. While submitting the bibs,
the NGO will have to select the Dream Run Group on their bib manager, and
submit the bib summary sheet with the donation amount to UWM.
On or before 30th September, any NGO
who is utilising their allocated 10K & Half Marathon slaots may do so a
minimum donation amount of INR 6000 against the normal INR 12,000 for the
Similarly, all Dream Run, Marathon,
Champions with disability and Senior Citizen bibs utilised on or before 30th
Sept 22 by an NGO may do so against an amount of INR 3000.
This is to allow an opportunity to NGOs
who may not be able to raise higher amounts while the general registrations is
still open to public.
Once all bibs from their 1st allocation are
utilised, NGOs can request more bibs for the second allocation through their
Requesting for bibs doesn’t mean NGOs
would get the bibs as second allocation will happen on a first come first serve
basis and depends on the availability of the bibs with UWM.
Return of bibs from second allocation
are not accepted, so NGOs should be very cautious when asking for number of
bibs in second allocation.
Bibs that are neither returned or
utilized by Wednesday 17th October, 2022 will be considered
forfeited and a deduction of INR 1,000 per unutilized bib will be applied from
amount (if any) raised by the NGO.
NGOs must return the unutilized bibs to
UWM by emailing the bib numbers to email@example.com by the said date.
NGO that requires charity bibs, is required to pay a bib blocking deposit of Rs
1000 per bib up to a maximum of Rs 10,000 to United Way Mumbai while
registering. The bib blocking deposit is taken in order to avoid bib wastage
and judicious utilization across all participating NGOs. This bib blocking
deposit is refundable, provided the NGO utilises all the allocated bibs by 18th
December 2022. UWM will deduct INR 1,000 from the bib deposit for every
unutilised bib. The NGO can also request fewer bibs or return the unutilised
bibs by 25th October 2022 to avoid any bib forfeit. NGOs must return the
unutilized bibs to UWM by emailing the bib numbers to firstname.lastname@example.org
by the said date.
NGOs can choose to block fewer bibs
initially and request for their remaining bibs by 25thOctober, 2022 to
ensure avoiding bib forfeiture.
Once the NGO has submitted all of their
Dream Run Group bibs, a race fee cheque in favour of ‘Procam International
Pvt.Ltd.’, (format of which is available onhttps://www.procam.in/tatamumbaimarathon/race-categories/dream-run/how-to-apply), will have to be
submitted to UWM. After UWM receives the required documents, NGOs will receive
a unique Group registration voucher code and link.
Yes, NGOs can pay the runner race fees.
The NGO can pay the race fee offline by
submitting a cheque of race fee in favour of ‘Procam International Pvt. Ltd.’
to UWM with the UWM Bib ID written on the back of the cheque along with the bib
summary sheet. NGOs will then receive a Prepaid Voucher code and a unique link
for runner registration. In case, the cheque is not honored, the bib will not
be issued to the runner.
NGO can also choose to pay the race fee
online through the Postpaid voucher code. Once the donation towards the bib is
processed, the NGO will receive a Postpaid Voucher code and unique link for
runner registration. In this case, NGO will have to fill the runner
registration online form on behalf of their runner and pay the race fee using
their debit/ credit card/ net banking.
No, all bib-related donations must be
made through cheque / DD or through online donations will thereafter be
transferred to the NGO(s) of the participant’s choice. Donations made
directly on the NGO page on UWM website will be considered as a direct donation
and will not be refunded once made.
NGOs can utilize their charity bibs by
seeking donations either through the Online mode, i.e. through UWM’s payment
gateway, or through the Offline mode via NEFT, cheques, and DDs in favour of
United Way of Mumbai and depositing in our bank account (No donation will be
refunded once made)
Online and offline donations
Once you log in to your account, you
can access the Bib Manager, a tool that enables you to receive donations. NGOs
can accept donations in two ways based on the donor’s preference: either
offline through a bank transfer or a cheque/ demand draft or online through the
Depending on the donor’s preference,
you can either share the online payment link with them or fill in their
details, including the cheque details and download the bib summary sheet. You
must send the summary sheet with the cheque/s to United Way Mumbai's office.
Donation cheques / DDs should be in favour of United Way of Mumbai.
UWM retains INR 500 per bib on Open 10k
and Half marathon bibs and INR 250 on Dream Run, Marathon, Champions with
Disability and Senior Citizen bibs. The retention on Charity Bib is fixed and
not a percentage of the donation amount to encourage NGOs to raise higher
amounts for their causes. There will be no separate payment gateway charges on
The race fee is a separate component
which is charged based on the actual number of individual participants in the
event. The same cannot be considered as a part of the donation made by you as
it is a cost against a service provided by the event promoter; in this case,
the bib and other arrangements made for an individual to participate in the
race. Therefore, it is charged separately by the event promoter – Procam
International Pvt. Ltd. at the time of registration on a separate website.
Runner registration happens on the
official website of the TMM. For both online and offline donation methods, once
a donation is marked 'success' on your dashboard, a voucher code is generated
and sent directly to the runner. An Online donation is marked success instantly
when the donor makes the payment through the payment gateway. Offline donations
are marked success after verifying that the cheque/bank transfer is reflected
in our account.
Once a donation is marked 'success' on
your dashboard, the voucher code would also reflect in your Bib Manager against
that Bib. You may share this voucher code with your runner so that they can
register directly on the event website. The online payment method eliminates
all paperwork, and runners can register instantly and receive their
confirmation email faster. In both cases (online or offline donation), no
physical copies of the runner forms will be accepted by UWM. Runner and donor
can be different people, and if such is the case, you need to share the
runner's email address with your bib manager for them to receive the voucher
code once the donation is successful. The voucher code can only be used once
and will have to be used before 30th December, 2022.
In order to incentivize the efforts of
those participating NGOs who fully leverage the platform provided by the TMM, a
list of 15 indicators have been identified, which translate into points for the
NGO. The points determine the privilege level of the NGO at the TMM 2023.

Tata Mumbai Marathon and raise funds for NGO(s) of their choice. Over 8200
employees from 204 companies had participated in TMM 2020. Besides raising

Option A:Make a single donation through one cheque.
Option B:Split the donation into two cheques (as mentioned in the table given below) for companies who require their contribution to be compliant to their CSR policy. (Companies making the contribution from their CSR budget and wishing it to be in accordance with the CSR Bill-which mandates contributions to be made directly to projects or programmes which are eligible as per the company’s CSR policy-can choose to donate via split cheques.)
Note: Donations once made will not be refunded.
For companies who require their
contribution to be compliant with their CSR policy, which mandates that
contributions have to be made directly to projects or programmes, the company
may choose to contribute via the split cheque option while making the
contribution for taking a corporate team. Under this, the donation would be in
two cheques, one in the name of UWM which cannot be claimed as CSR and the
other in the name of the NGO being supported. Both cheques would need to be
submitted to UWM at the time of registration.
As per the circular dated June 18, 2014
issued by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, one off events such as marathon
would not qualify as CSR expenditure for the purposes of Section 135 of
Companies Act, 2013. The corporate donor shall be solely responsible and liable
for compliance with provisions relating to corporate social responsibility
under the Companies Act, 2013 and the rules made thereunder (including but not
limited to Section 135 of Companies Act, 2013), in relation to the amounts
being paid by the corporate donor to United Way of Mumbai for participation in
the Tata Mumbai Marathon (including any amount paid as the event registration
fees (used for purchase of bibs) or towards administrative expenses).
If the corporate is not registered
under the Indian Companies Act 1956 and is a 100% subsidiary of a foreign
company, then it falls under FCRA and hence the beneficiary NGO must have FCRA
registration to receive the donation from the corporate. The corporate would
also be required to provide an authorized declaration on company letterhead
confirming the same for UWM to proceed with the registration process. As per
the recent FCRA regulations, NGOs cannot disburse FCRA funds to another.
Therefore, the FCRA donations must be made through split donation option only.
The corporate is required to fill the
registration form available for download here, sign, stamp, attach the donation
cheque/s and courier or hand deliver the documents to:Campaigns Team c/o
United Way Mumbai,Mumbai Educational Trust, Bandra Reclamation, Bandra (West),

the bib was availed for someone else at the earlier fundraising level, this
privilege is no longer applicable.
Please refer to the fundraiser
privileges section for more details.
Upon being eligible for a bib at
various fundraising levels, UWM will contact the fundraiser for the privilege.
Once the fundraiser agrees to avail the benefit, UWM will share a voucher code
and a registration link to complete the registration.
Fundraisers who are not eligible for a
complimentary bib will have to pay the race fees to the event organisers.
This is new and one of ways through
which your NGO can raise funds. When a general runner is registering with
Procam, there will be a pop-up option that’ll ask for the runner to donate and
be a part of great cause. The runner can select an NGO by searching the name.
If the runner doesn’t have any pre-decided NGO, they can still go to UWM and
choose from a pool of NGO cause-wise and donate.
In another scenario, if the runner
couldn’t decide on an NGO but still wants to donate, that person could still
donate and the amount will come to UWM’s common pool for participating NGOs.
