CSOs are continuously needed to raise funds for the cause they are working for. Sources to raise funds are Government Schemes, Grant Making Organisations – both National and International, Companies who support projects as a part of their CSR and very important the individual donors whose donations help in the core strengthening of an organisation since these donations are largely undesignated.
India Cares believes and has seen organisations grow leaps and bounds through individual donations both funds, in-kind and volunteering – and events give the perfect opportunity for this. We also help Companies support CSOs as a part of their CSR Budges through Projects
Current events/ projects to help raise funds are:
India Cares provides practical assistance to small and medium size CSOs in setting-up and enhancing communications to and with society - especially Individuals and Companies which in turn will enhance visibility, increase donor confidence and trust with well-wishers and donors. http://icfn.in/reach-out/
A peer to peer learning programme to support leadership development and networking in the social sector was launched in August 2015. The CEO Forum is now a regular programme in Bengaluru, Delhi and Hyderabad. We have had over 90 CEOs/ Managing Trustees from CSOs being a part of this. We have received very encouraging feedback from many of them. We are taking this programme to at least three more cities this year: Kolkata, Mumbai & Chennai. http://ic-ceoforum.in/
Quite a few CSOs associate with us through the year in various programmes, many other who need the let the Society know about their work, but are unable to promote themselves want to associate with us too.
‘Membership’ of India Cares Foundation is for organisations who wish to have a long term association with us, want access to our resources and expertise, increase their visibility through our platform and generally be a part of the social sector, irrespective of the cause and geographical are they are impacting. http://icfn/membership/
