The people behind PCF working in a cohesive unit are both silent and active partners. While some are the visible face, others prefer to work via channels of anonymity. Preferring instead their effective philanthropic work to be recognized, instead of their names and faces. The concept rose through brainstorming that led to the conclusion that genuine philanthropic causes don’t get enough recognition for their effort and work.
Fundraising is not an easy task in the context of the Not For Profit World. We realize it requires not only expertise, but also deep rooted connectivity to establish an effective fundraising program.
PCF gets immense support and guidance from the India Venture Group, also financial advisors on the board of PCF.
