CRY’s organisational costs comprise:
- Raising donations
- Selecting, monitoring, evaluating and providing capacity building inputs to projects
- Creating public awareness on our children’s situation and their rights
- Support activities like administration, human resources, communication, information technology and financial management.
- Designing paper products such as greeting cards, stationery etc.
Office equipment, furniture, travel, courier services, information technology support, media and advertising are some of the areas in which we receive free or discounted services from corporate partners as well as donations in cash and kind, wherever possible. Exemptions from duties also help reduce our costs. Income from corpus investments and other funds are also used to cover expenses.
We would like to take this opportunity to reiterate our on-going need for support in the form of infrastructure, equipment, corpus funds, skills and services. It is support of this nature that enables us to focus on our activities in the field rather than on our own viability. Each rupee saved is another deployed to benefit children. Every contribution in these areas actually frees resources and enhances our capacities.
