The Foundation will be building on the significant success achieved by IISc in the form of major donationsby the Bagchi, Parthasarathy and Isaac families toward the IISc Hospital project. These donations will offer a great springboard for the Foundation’s fund-raising efforts in the US.
With so many opportunities being presented to you, it can be hard to make an informed choice about where to make your contribution as a potential donor to IISc. As an alumnus or corporate donor, you would want to make a connection with a cause that’s close to your core philanthropic priorities. If world-class education, research, and worldwide impact and scale appeal to you, you will want to turn your attention to IISc Foundation that is founded in values you can relate to and deliver tangible benefit to your philanthropic cause via IISc.
There is a Direct Need in the world and your community
There is great need all over the world. World-class research that has significant impact on the masses on a big scale can be supported by donations to IISc Foundation, established solely for the benefit of enabling IISc to deliver on that promise.
IISc Foundation Does the Leg Work for You
One of the biggest benefits in working with IIScFoundation is that you are alleviated from the burden of finding a trusted way to get your donation to IISc with a lot of transparency. With that “leg work” out of the way, you’ll find peace of mind that your contribution is going to a worthy project.
All you need to begin, is an idea of what type of project you want to support. You can contribute to the general research-enabling infrastructure of IISc or direct your donations to specific projects.
Provides a Sense of Community
When you donate to a IISc Foundation, you don’t just drop a cheque in the mailbox and be done with it, unless that’s what you want. Many people become immersed with the foundation, following updates via a newsletter, on social networks, or through some other point of contact and donor involvement program. You can be involved as much as you like, but there’s only one addendum – be prepared to gain a few new friends in the process!
Finally, is the financial benefit that comes to you. IRS rewards you for contribution in the form of tax deduction benefits that can be applied to your taxes at fiscal yearend.
IISc Foundation will provide you with a receipt that you simply provide to your accountant, and they’ll take care of the rest. It’s that simple.
