Donation Program for TGF

Persons or institutions wishing to contribute towards the projects of The George Foundation may choose to donate either in cash or in kind. Contributions may be given to the common fund of the Foundation, or may be earmarked for specific projects:

1. Please click here to see the various donation programs to assist the needs of Shanti Bhavan. You can make a difference in the lives of children from backgrounds of deprivation and want.

As a residential school that houses children, teachers and support staff, Shanti Bhavan has many needs, similar to those of any home. It would greatly ease our financial burden if you would support us by making monetary and/or material donations to cover some of the needs. Those who have corporate contacts, please look into the possibility of material donations of items produced by those companies. Please click here for our " Wish List" of the capital and operating needs of Shanti Bhavan.
