Action items

  • For Arvind Rao on Mathru Foundation
    • General Questions :
      • Who is the donor : is it individual or institutional donor ? Good to know the success story behind getting the donation. 
      • How does she find children ? It would be good to hear about the stories on how she hears about the children and the process of bringing them in. 
      • Do they plan on publishing any annual reports or newsletters for their donors ? Is she is busy, does she plan to get someone for that ?
    • Questions on Fund utilization report : 
      • The Budget was 20 lakhs (approx). For 6 months, this would be 10 lakhs. We sent about 4 lakhs for first 6 months at 40% budget but she has used 4.5 lakhs. Is the utilization report specific to Asha or whole? 
      • Why is staff salary lower than budget ?
      • Hospital expense details : Did some children have surgery ?
      • Is the education expense paid once every year around June/July ?
