Are you looking for a meaningful way to participate in education and empowerment of young people? Running a fundraising campaign is an great way of creating truly meaningful change for young people in India. The funds you raise go towards the cost of the operations of our two after schools for 90 children, weekend and holiday programs and leadership and well-being programs in the community and in local schools in the villages around Auroville. We’ve made it super easy to start your own online campaign: Become a fundraising champion!
- Where does the money go?
Auroville International (AVI) USA supports Auroville projects to flourish and as Thamarai is a project under the Auroville Foundation, they are our fiscal partner and channel funds to us. AVI USA is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organization (tax ID number 23-7360183) under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. This means that donations within the USA are tax deductible.
- How can I track the donations I receive in my campaign?
You will have access to a portal for your campaign (basically, like a back-end dashboard with information about donations received – e.g. from whom, where, amount). You will get an email notifying you of every donation made to your campaign.
- What kind of accountability for donations can you provide?
Every donor will receive a confirmation email after they donate. We will regularly share updates and reports so you can see how your donations are being used to benefit girls.
- If I am in India does it make sense to channel funds via the USA portal?
It is up to you. Auroville also has its own gateway for donations within India.
