Jeevitnadi Living River Foundation (JN) has been working towards revival of Rivers through Public Participation since 2014. It acquired status of Section 8 (non-profit) company in year 2016.
Over this period, JN created so many innovative programs that generate awareness as well as citizen actions like Muthai River Festival, Toxin Free Lifestyle workshops, Muthai Riverwalk, Story of River exhibition, Adopt A Stretch program, Events by the River etc. The programs have provided a platform for citizens to participate meaningfully in the effort towards River Revival mission.
From the beginning itself JN has been supported by generous well wishers like you who contributed financially as and when needed because of which JN has never been worried on financial front as well as not dependent on any particular corporate for CSR. We have accepted CSR funds only for specific projects and not for any regular activities.
These programs, evolved and refined over period of time, have proved their effectiveness to engage the citizens and make positive impact. We wish to continue for further refining as well as scaling up these programs for larger impact. And also create new ones.
For this, a proper structure is now put in place. You can refer attachment for details. To work on this, now we need more consistent resources like admin staff (part time for the time being), Compliance costs like financial audits/ statutory filings/ accounts writing, Logistics/ Conveyance and other sundry costs, Professional media handling, Photo/ Video documentations, remunerations for Experts involved etc. Estimated costs for all this in coming year is approx Rs. 5,50,000 – 6,00,000/-.
Since we wish to run these programs continuously, we are looking for Donors who can support JN every year with some fixed contribution. The requirement of fund can be easily met if there are @500 donors committing minimum Rs.1,000/- per year for next 3 years. Also, you can contribute by sponsoring an event.
You all have supported JN since beginning and we are sure you will continue to do so in future as well in all forms.
Once amount is transferred, please send whatsapp message to Manish Ghorpade (93253 82401) mentioning Name, Date of Transfer & Amount of Transfer.
Once message is received we will issue Donation Receipts immediately.
Donations made to JN can be claimed for IT exemption under 80G ( certificate no. PN/CIT(Exempt.)/Tech/80G/273/2018-19/. Dated 30.08.2019)
Thank you all in advance on behalf of JN!!!
