Would you give a store money if they couldn’t tell you what use/product/service you’d get in return and the related value? Well the same thought process applies to donors and funders. Don’t ask for money unless you can also provide a strategy and clear value.
One thought on “Nonprofit Donors”
History of the Organization:
The Secretary/Founder Director, Mr. M Veerabadraiah, hails from a family of the poorest among poor. After completing pre university education in 1976, he joined MYRADA /PLAN an international organization which was working for gender justice, social empowerment, water shed and educational programs.
He worked an organiser and gained Knowledge of rural poverty situations in the rural part of Tamil Nadu state. He concentrated on a literacy program for illiterate women living in the Rural Area. Families living below poverty line used to migrate from various parts of Tamil Nadu state and other neighbouring states into the city in search of livelihood opportunities. Due to abject poverty the women and their families lived in the slums, finding it extremely difficult to live without the basic amenities of life.
This abominable living condition of the poor and marginalized caused Mr. Veerabadraiah to think and work independently with a commitment for their upliftment. He has been joined by Mrs. Geetha who is working as a president in MARGHADARSHI disabled rehabilitation center, Mr. Dayananda Arul Das, a Director of Capsal Azariah children home, and other like minded persons such as Mr. Y Rajappa,
Mr., and Ramesh started Basavanapura Development Organization in 2005. It has completed six years in serving the poor and needy with major focus on education, socio economic development and health benefiting the women, children, disables, marginal farmers.
At the initial Phase, Mr. Veerabadraiah started to work voluntarily in 12 villages of Mathagondapally vicinity by establishing a regional office at S Kurubatty village of Thally Block, Krishna giri District of Tamil Nadu state. As time passed by Mr. Veerabadrappa realised that the office should run without dependence on external sources. It was then that he thought of starting a small branch office at Mathagondapally village of Thally Block.
