TATA STEEL KOLKATA 25K has raised Rs 3.02 crore since 2014
The TSK 25K platform provides a bridge for everyone to associate with a cause close to their heart and connect with a Civil Society Organisation (CSO/ NGO) working on the cause.
For Companies it provides an opportunity for employees to engage with the CSR mission of the company while promoting health and fitness.
All stakeholders of a CSO can get together to promote their cause in as many ways and places as possible to generate more support - friends and funds.
A CSO registers with the Philanthropy Partner, India Cares Foundation and provides their legal documentation, audit report; and utilisation report of funds raised in the previous edition of the event, if they have participated.
Team India Cares then works with the registered CSOs to know their work and fund requirement, communications, obtaining volunteers, Board members and the community served, involved in promoting their cause and need, especially highlighting the impact of their service in society.
In 2018, 36 CSOs participated in the Tata Steel Kolkata 25K, they raised Rs 65.35 lakh, 27% more than in 2017. India Cares places an emphasis on involvement of individuals in fundraising, building awareness and contributing. The CSOs really followed this principle: 58% of funds raised were from and by individuals and four Care Champions (individuals) who set their own fundraising targets raised Rs 10.54 lakh; and 12 Companies contributed Rs 27.50 lakh. CSOs themselves put efforts into raising funds and raised Rs 15.15 lakh! All together there were 36 fundraisers; and the 36 CSOs received donations from 559 donors.
These funds will help provide services to benefit disadvantaged sections of society, including children, youth and adults. The services include Education, Health care, including Mental health and Mobility Aids; and Skills building to enhance livelihood opportunities.
