India is the first country in the world to make corporate social responsibility (CSR) mandatory, following an amendment to the Companies Act, 2013 in April 2014. Businesses can invest their profits in areas such as education, poverty, gender equality, and hunger as part of any CSR compliance.
Indian law now requires companies to give 2% of their profits to charity. After all, a bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog. So, a corporate can donate either with a bitter feeling that they are being forced or with open arms, as an opportunity to make a difference. Balarjun Foundation has made charity easier than ever. A corporate can partner with Balarjun Foundation and in turn help needy children by using one (or more) of the following partnerships
A lot of times in life people think that only way to help destitute is funding money. But one thing the people forget is that a thing useless to one person can be a gift to another. You will be amazed to know how dear your “useless” things can be to poor children. So, corporate can inform its employees that donation boxes will be in the once for some time and that they can donate anything that they feel is useless. Employees can donate stationary, toys, clothes, medicines etc. For poor children nothing is useless, in fact they will see your donation as a blessing.
Payroll donation is a unique program designed for corporate employees, who would like to contribute to a social cause. Through payroll donation, corporate employees can donate for preferred charities/Social Cause directly from their monthly salary.Payroll donation is one of the most effective mechanisms to make a large difference through small contribution. Considering an average donation of Rs.100 per month will make a large difference at the end.
This type of donation is very interesting. In this type employees are encouraged to donate. And the corporate doubles the total amount collected from donation of all employees. This acts as an incentive for employees to donate as much as possible because for every penny the employee donates, the needy children get 2 pennies
Another important way to contribute to the society is to give your time. In this program employees of the corporate can volunteer to work with us. They can teach in NFE centers on weekends. Employees with technical skills can help us technically. Graphic designer can help us make an appealing poster that attracts donation. We believe that no one can do everything, but everyone can do something. So, everyone has a way to help us and in turn help impoverished children. All kinds of time/skill commitments are appreciated.Volunteering gives employees to a chance to try new activities in a completely different working environment. This will help them to build their leadership skills, team skills and most importantly a satisfaction of giving back something to the society.
