Date of fund-raising appeal: 9 December 2014
Swarna Bharat Party is happy to announce that:
1. After being after registered in June 2014, it was decided after a 5-day workshop in July 2014 to activate the party.
2. We obained the PAN number (AALAS5994H) in November 2014.
3. Bank account is expected to be opened in the third week of December 2014 after a key office bearer returns to Delhi from Bihar.
We are proposing to launch the party's presence in electoral politics in the forthcoming Delhi elections. The key objective of this initiative is to introduce the SKC agenda to India, and to get good people to start looking at India's national liberal party.
To activate the party we have hired a professional website desigher to prepare a fully revamped professional website. We are also doing background work to establish an accounting and membership system. Thereafter we will set up an office in Delhi – including a person employed to manage day to day affairs.
These costs are tightly managed, and members are contributing in kind (and of course, time) to the extent they can. However, we also need to raise funds to meet these costs, including the costs of initial marketing of the party.
We have estimated that a minimum of Rs.3 lakhs is needed at this stage, to set us up for the next three months. Thereafter, we'll review and issue any further fundraising appeal.
At this stage we are only seeking commitments. SBP will call on the committed funds after its bank account is opened. We expect to call upon the committed funds by the third week of December.
Please do not commit to donate if you are not an Indian citizen. NRIs can donate but not OCIs/ PIOs. The amount donated to SBP is allowed as deduction under Section 80GGC of the Income-Tax Act. Please note that we are committed to publishing names of donors (and city but NOT the detailed address, phone number or email ID).
Any funds raised above Rs. 3 lakhs will be retained by the party for future work.
YOUR SMALL CONTRIBUTION WILL ADD UP. TOGETHER WE WILL CHANGE INDIA.
