DISTRICT CSR AWARDS - 20 JANUARY 2024 District CSR Awards Function, of which we are the Chief Host Club was held on 20 Jan 2024. This is the second edition of CSR Awards, the first having been held before the Pandemic, which was also hosted by our Club. Two of our Past Presidents – Rtns Rakesh Bhargava and Ravi Kapoor are members of the Core Team organizing this event. CSR from corporates has become an integral part of fundraising over the last five-odd years, and statistics show that we are garnering only a minute fraction of the funds available through this route, as an organization. Our club however, has taken the lead thanks to the initial thrust led by Rtn PP Rakesh Bhargava, and help from Rtns Raman Nanda and Vipen Malhotra, who ensured that their companies made substantive contribution to our projects in the initial years. Later, we were able to tap into companies like BMC Software, Volkart Foundation etc.; the largest boost came from our own member Rtn Nitin Desai, who donated Rs 3 Crores through his company Desai Brothers. This catapulted our club to the top position in Rotary Foundation giving in the last Rotary Year. At the CSR awards function, the Rotary District aims to recognize the help given by Corporates, and award the most significant contributors. We sincerely hope that these Corporates continue to choose us as their implementation partner, and repose their trust in us in this year, and the years to follow.
