CSR Opportunities

The emphasis placed by more and more companies on corporate social responsibility symbolises the recognition that prosperity is best achieved in an inclusive society
Tony Blair 

“We invite Corporates and Foundations to partner us in our endeavor to provide the best to the underprivileged and economically disadvantaged children in the community”
                           
We promise that each penny that you contribute will be utilized optimally and in the best possible way for the welfare of children. Our track record of the last 18 years is proof that we are on the road to excellence.

With effect from 1st April 2017, all Donations to Purkal Youth Development Society are 50% Income Tax Exempt under Section 80G of Income Tax Act 1961 . We also have FCRA approval for receiving donations from Non-Indians. Contributions made to our associate in the USA are entitled to 501(c) Tax Exemption

The Society started with just one donor 18 years ago. Since then several likeminded friends have joined the cause and helped. A few years ago Corporates/Foundations joined the band of grant givers. Today we have several benefactors and philanthropists supporting us. Our sustenance however needs continuing support and we believe that Corporates will find in us good value for CSR support.

With the insertion of the words “promotion of education” (mentioned in scheduled 7 of the Companies Act 2013) as a possible purpose for spending CSR, our ability to garner support from corporates has received a major boost since we are a transparent, credible Mission with an excellent track record.

We have designed different packages to help Corporates, Foundations, and Trusts. They find in us opportunities for long term or short term participation.

Detailed proposals and budgets for these projects can be provided on request.  Donors could either part fund or completely fund these projects.
