The work we do is only made possible through the generous support of individuals and organisations who share our aims of preserving and promoting the Deccan’s rich built heritage. Read on to learn more about how you can get involved.
Why Support Us?
We’ve been involved with restoration work in this vibrant part of India since 2013. In our ongoing efforts, we’ve successfully raised funds for and completed several projects. Close involvement with local communities has helped them build a keen sense of ownership in their living history. Apart from conservation work on the ground, we also commission and publish guidebooks and books, organise webinars and events, and continue to promote and highlight the importance of the Deccan, not just in India, but across the world. To continue to do this, we need your help. By supporting us, you become part of the close-knit DHF family, and have the opportunity to participate in our events, join us on specially curated tours, and more.
How Can You Support Us?
There are different ways in which you can support our work, whether through becoming a member of our community, individual giving, or through corporate sponsorship. While our donation values are pegged to the USD, we welcome friends and patrons from India and around the world, and have made it easier for you to donate in your currency of choice. Read on for details of each option below, or get in touch today to speak with someone from our team.
Our individual giving programme is available to anyone who would like to make a donation in the US, Europe or India. U.S. taxpayers can donate to The American Friends of the Deccan Heritage Foundation, a U.S.-based public charity exempt from income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, contributions to which are deductible for federal income tax purposes under section 170 of the Code. If you are interested to know more about where your funds will be put to use, want to discuss potential benefits, or would like to simply understand more about our work before making a donation, please get in touch. Donations of any amount can be made through our payment gateway here.
