CAF India has raised upwards of INR 500+ crore in support of diverse CSR causes in India. Through our Donor Advised Funds, we support donors identify charities and support projects that appeal to them giving customised solutions in a tax-efficient way.
Apart from our vast portfolio of managing CSR grants, CAF India with its pan-India presence and diverse partnerships also offers a unique platform to its stakeholders - NGOs, companies and the government, to connect and work collectively towards creating a greater social impact.
