How much of your income goes to grants & programs?

75 percent of the money we raise each year goes to grants and program services. That includes funds that go directly to women’s groups /blind schools etc. travel to undeserved regions to learn about emerging groups and the salaries of program staff who review more than 500 proposals per year and make recommendations.

Why doesn’t all of your income just go to grants?

Giving grants takes a lot of effort. If we had 10,00,000 and gave it all to one cause, we would only work with one program, review one budget, and write one check. So we try to distribute the donation to all our major causes as per requirement and demand. All our major causes are judged properly before offering any donation to any cause.

Do you pay your Board of Directors?

No, none of the office bearers, executive council member or management team get paid. They volunteer their time and energy for SUTRA

Our program expense to total expense ratio is 75 percent. Rest will go staff salaries and marketing / promotion to spread work and get more doners.

I don’t have money to give. What else can I do to help?

You can get involved by educating your friends and family about the status of women’s empowerment, feeding poor children, helping blind girls, helping senior citizens.  Encourage them to come forward and donate for needy. You can become volunteer and support the cause by giving your time
