There are many Social Work Organizations in India, working on the objective of providing help to elderly struggling with poverty, letting them lead a life of self-respect.

Through generous support of people, these organizations help elderly in different parts of the country with various programs and give them a hope to live more.

There are many ways in which you can help these NGOs bring a positive change in the lives of many. If you would like to be a part of this effort, you are able to render your support to such organizations in the following ways:

Donations

The idea of donating to improve the lives of the needy and the poor has been there since time immemorial. From companies to individuals, people from all walks of life are known to donate money for a better future for all.

So, make a contribution – get a friend, a company or any establishment to make one, as well. Even a small contribution can help a poor elderly live a life of dignity.

You can make a contribution either online by visiting the website or by cheque / Demand Draft.

To encourage people to make a contribution for charitable causes, the IT Department lets one claim tax exemption, as well.

Donation in cash is acceptable only up to ten thousand rupees for being eligible for Income Tax Deduction.

Corpus Fund

An enormous as well as healthy Corpus Fund protects the future of an organization and so the future of the beneficiaries. You can make a contribution to a corpus fund, just as above.

Donations to such NGOs are exempt under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act 1961.

Non-financial Help

The programmes such NGOs support call for non- monetary donations of all kinds, too. To know how, have a look:

BUY

Exclusive cards, calendars as well as gifts:

You can place an order for greeting cards, calendars as well as gifts, either online or through the NGO’s office. Every time you purchase a product, you help the organization to reach out to the poor elderly.

Volunteer

Join hands with the organization in their day to day work. Volunteer and reach out to more and more poor elderly, both in normal times as well as in times of natural calamities.

Hence, if you feel the need to help in caring for the elderly then provide support in any of the abovementioned ways and make life of a poor, needy person worthwhile.
