HelpAge depends on donations and legacies to fund its services and activities. Resources are raised from:
HelpAge's biggest supporters are its community of individual donors who contribute to the cause regularly, often without any expectation of returns, other than the satisfaction of doing a good deed. Among them are school children as young as five, motivated by teachers and parents, to do their bit for the elderly.
Corporates & Business houses
More companies are now choosing to implement socially responsible policies in response to the increasing number of customers, stakeholders and employees who demand that businesses give something back to society.
The internal benefits of CSR to companies are also becoming increasingly apparent:
- Companies engaged in CSR are reporting benefits to their reputation and their bottom line.
- Studies reveal a strong correlation between CSR activity and higher performance.
Companies give in various ways - Cause Related Marketing, Sponsorship, Payroll giving, Gifts in kind, etc.
Events Supported by Corporates
Many corporates are fulfilling their CSR initiatives by coming forward to show their support by sponsoring events to help promote the cause and create awareness. Coming on board for such events also helps in showcasing the corporate as a sensitive and responsible member of society using their resources for the good of society.
Corporates came on board to sponsor the HelpAge India organized Charity Golf Event "Par for a Cause – Tee off for a Million elderly" on April 26th, 2014 at the Delhi Golf Club to raise awareness and resources for our programs, especially for HelpAge's initiative to eradicate preventable blindness.....
