Over the last 18 years, Nalamdana has reached out to many audiences around Tamil Nadu and in some other Southern States. Most of Nalamdana’s funding has come from international organizations. With the changing international atmosphere in terms of funding and India’s increasing prominence in the world stage, and Tamil Nadu’s growing economy and success, Nalamdana feels strongly that future support for programmes that affect our own communities must come from within.
Direct and Unrestricted Donations: These are typically larger, one-time donations that help Nalamdana build a corpus fund for their operational expenses. Make a direct donation to Nalamdana to support their already ongoing programmes that can benefit from additional support to make them more effective and reach more widely.
Annual Giving: Individuals or companies in India and abroad sometimes choose to make annual donations of a certain sum. Reminders will go out to them annually for the same. Sign up for an annual donation commitment.
Engage Nalamdana to develop a tailor-made programme for their work force on the health or social topic that concerns them the most
Take advantage of the excellent tools already developed by Nalamdana on a range of issues and sponsor additional copies of them for their own work communities or other communities/ schools/ beneficiaries that Nalamdana can help identify.
