Shanti Bhavan Donation and Support Program
Shanti Bhavan is a home and school for historically deprived children from disadvantaged backgrounds of poverty. The aim of Shanti Bhavan is to enable these children to succeed in life by giving them the opportunity to develop their innate potential. It is hoped that this will break the vicious cycle of poverty, and that these children will, in turn, help their families.
We invite public and corporate participation. We have set up an endowment fund for Shanti Bhavan. This account is maintained with ICICI Bank in Bangalore , India . As we are a registered charitable trust with the Government of India and the IRS in the US, your contribution is exempt from income tax.
There are 3 categories of donations.
2. Other donations: Any monetary donation and/or donations in kind such as computers, books, footwear, clothing, sports equipment, medicines, stationery, audio-visual equipment, toiletries, and bath and bed linen. Costs associated with children's education, clothing, medical treatment, welfare, and maintaining the infrastructure may also be met.
Any contribution in kind worth Rs.8 lakhs ($20,000) or more will have the same status as donors in category one.
Shanti Bhavan Sponsor: Any contribution over Rs. 50 lakhs ($125,000) will be engraved in the Shanti Bhavan commemorative stone slab and entered in the institution’s historic records.
3. Individual Donations -- "I am with you"
Individuals may contribute any sum, no matter how small, instead of a specific sponsorship for a child. This will register the donor as a "Universal Friend" of the institution. Please be assured that your contribution, regardless of the size, will make a difference.
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.
