IDFC FIRST Bank Karma First program is our endeavor to equip every customer with the opportunity to do social good while they bank with us. 

  • Karma First program is a unique philanthropic program that allows our customers to donate a part of their savings or a fixed amount in  a recurring fashion, to social causes of their choice from a portfolio of credible non-profits
  • We enable this and make the process easier for our customers by ensuring these social organizations have been thoroughly vetted through a robust due-diligence process and have been on-boarded as long-term partners for support.
  • The Bank has a long-term working relationship with these non-profits and your support will help us multiply our existing impact. 
  • Once you are a Karma First program donor, we will ensure you receive the requisite documentation such as donation receipts and 80G certificate wherever applicable, once you make the donation with us.
