__In everyday life we all have living expenses – for
food and accommodation, for example. In a similar way, our aid projects
have daily running costs and depend on a steady income to ensure the
care of the children in their trust. Please support these aid projects
by providing them with a regular income on which they can depend. You
can set up a direct debit arrangement with your bank to transfer a sum
of your choice on a monthly basis into our Aid account.
In the West, one single visit to a restaurant may well cost you a good deal more than sponsoring a child for an entire month in India. Gandhi said “Follow the way of each coin that leaves your purse, and you will learn a lot about yourself”.
You can become a volunteer for the charity, or you can make a donation – it is easy to do good.
As the founder of Padma pledges to cover all administrative costs, your donation will be used 100% to benefit the aid projects. As soon as the money is received, you will be sent a receipt for tax purposes, provided you let us have your address when you send us the money. Should you prefer to sponsor specific projects, please inform us of this when you make your donation.
Some people prefer to have donations made to charity rather than receive presents on, say, their birthday. On such occasions you can assign the proceeds for a specific project. If you would like further information on this, please contact us.
Another means of giving is to increase the trust assets of the Padma Foundation. Money donated in this way is invested securely, the yield going to the aid projects. An agreement made with the Kinderfonds Stiftungszentrum means that we can guarantee that the total sum donated will go to charitable aid projects, even if the Padma Foundation at some time ceases to exist.
The Padma Trust is registered as a charitable and non-profitmaking organisation under the tax number 848/22769. You are therefore entitled to deduct your contributions when you submit your tax form and the proceeds of your donation go in their entity to the aid projects for which they are intended.
