FRIENDS OF CCF
The Friends of CCF initiative is a platform to share with you our work — in education and research in human settlements.
As a Friend of the Foundation you will be part of our creative community and support our mission as a catalyst for architectural, urban design, planning and community-based projects that try to improve the condition of human settlements in India.
The Charles Correa Foundation is constituted as a duly registered not-for-profit public charitable trust. All work undertaken by CCF is on a not-for-profit basis. All donations to CCF are exempted u/s 80G of the Income Tax Act. This gives Friends a great opportunity to contribute. Tax rebate can be claimed while filing annual Income Tax Returns.
The minimum donation to be a Friend of CCF starts at ₹ 10,000. The funds from Friends go into building our corpus.
DUE TO GOVERNMENT OF INDIA REGULATIONS, WE CAN ONLY ACCEPT DONATIONS IN INDIAN RUPEES (₹) BY INDIVIDUALS / ORGANISATIONS BASED IN INDIA.
Contributors would be recognised patrons of the Foundation and we would like to offer a small token of our gratitude to you, a copy of ‘A Place in the Shade’ by Charles Correa — a book which explores architectural and urban issues in India, from the house as a machine for dealing with the country’s often hostile climate to the metaphysical role of architecture as a “model of the cosmos.” This provocative and eminently readable collection of essays argues that the country’s habitat must respond to the overriding parameters of climate, culture and financial resources, and that our physical environment should accommodate both diversity and synergy. ‘A Place in the Shade’ identifies the defining issues of the urbanisation trends that are so rapidly transforming India.
As a recognised patron we would grant you priority access to our forums, news and publications and recognition in CCF’s annual donor listing.
Additionally, corporate benefactors can write to firstname.lastname@example.org and donate CSR amounts to fund specific projects undertaken by CCF, this would require them to submit a formal letter addressing the project they wish to donate to.
