How do I update my contact details?

Why do you waste money on glossy and frequent mailers and appeals?

People lead such fast paced lives these days and have very little time to spare. Bearing this in mind our materials are designed to attract the attention of the recipient. Also, much of our printing costs are subsidized by our printers, who charge the lowest that is possible for them sometimes even at the cost of losing out on their profits. We try to average about three mailers a year. In fact, if you could share these appeals with your friends and relatives, it would cut our costs even further.

How can I help you process receipts faster?

It is sufficient if you mention your full name, address and your Donor ID on the reverse side of the Cheque or DD or on the covering letter and also mention for what purpose you intend this donation. Please mention the address and pin code of the bank for outstation cheques.
