Founded in 2005, the foundation operated in a national level. Since its inception it has been an independent, nonprofit organization. The trustees of the foundation set policy and delegate authority to the president and senior staff for the foundation’s grant making and operations. Program officers in the India explore opportunities to pursue the foundation’s goals, formulate strategies and recommend proposals for funding. Since its charter stated that its resources should be used “all for the public welfare,” the foundation made grants to many different kinds of schools, organizations. The foundation becomes a national philanthropy dedicated to the advancement of human welfare and human development. There are seven trustees, 15 Advisory members in foundation and several volunteer members.
We believe that the best way to meet this challenge is to encourage initiatives by those living and working closest to where problems are located; to promote collaboration among the nonprofit, government and business sectors; and to ensure participation by men and women from diverse communities and at all levels of society. In our experience, such activities help build common understanding, enhance excellence, enable people to improve their lives and reinforce their commitment to society
