[ZESTCaste] 2009 scholarship donations


2009 scholarship donations


Dear donors and friends,

I apologize for the delay in accepting donations for 2009 scholarships. It is delayed as we were trying to fix Organizational issues in India. I am almost done with it. Following is the progress:

1.       Friends for Education International has been registered under Friends for Education International (India Chapter)

2.       Organizational committee has been established. I will send the info in another mail

3.       Bank Account is opened (Corporate Bank, Nampally, Hyderabad)

4.       Working on getting Income Tax exemption and FRCA clearance

5.       Applications for scholarships have been received


So, I request for your donations. We have only 2 weeks in 2009. Please rush your donations.

For donations in USD, we will issue certificate for your tax purposes as ours is a 501(c)(3) org.

For donations in rupees, we may not be able to do so.


Remember that we gave more than 100 scholarships last year and I want to see atleast 50% increase this year. Please help us to help the deserving but financially and socially backward children in India. Please let your family members, friends, and colleagues know our work and encourage them to help us.
