Set up to encourage the Civil Society Organisations (CSOs/ NGOs) and their well wishers to reach out and communicate better about their work/ cause.
Work and Achievements
Civil Society Organisations (CSOs/ NGOs) in India hardly have the capacity and/ or the bandwidth to have specialized fundraisers or communications personnel. Usually they depend on volunteers or board members & well-wishers to spread the word about the work and the cause they are impacting.
There are many individuals who in general want to strengthen the social sector, who are unsure of where to donate and who want to do that little extra for the cause they believe in - We invite these individuals to use this opportunity and join the ‘Shakti Fund Campaign’. Shakti fund is a common pool of donations which will be distributed to CSOs from different categories with set criteria, showing the most proactive engagement with their supporters and friends. The aim of this concept is to encourage individuals, CSOs and companies to get more involved and most importantly build a better network of support.
Tata Consultancy Services World 10k Bengaluru helps CSOs to get more out of their volunteers, supporters & Trustees and in addition engage the general public too. The Shakti Fund hopes to get these CSOs, their supporters and volunteers concentrate more on their resources to utilize the platform effectively and what better way to do this than by promising them a ‘bonus’ for their efforts they put in.
India Cares has, in the past 2 years, given over Rs 20 lakh as Shakti Fund Bonus donations to organisations.
Fund Utilisation Statement
Funds will be used to strengthen NGOs communications and as incentive to their supporters to get more involved in their cause.
