Helping Underprivileged Students Pursue their Dreams.
2016 Year in Review
By President – Prasad Kunisetty
What better day to e-publish our very first Newsletter than Sankranti?
First of all, thank you very much to all of the volunteers, donors, social workers, executive committee, office bearers and board members for your committed and dedicated support to TeluguPeople Foundation! Wish you all a Happy and Peaceful New Year 2017 !
Enrolled as Non-Profit
We had a wonderful 2016. Our major achievement in 2016 is to get TPF enrolled in to the list of eligible non-profit organizations in multiple corporations across the United States. This helped us get a good amount of matching grant. Our size of donations has substantially increased in 2016 and that will help us give more scholarships to eligible students. Another achievement is to setup a small Endowment Fund with the surplus amount. Please take a moment to browse through first edition of our newsletter for detailed operational and financial report for the year
In 2016, we formalized titles for our office bearers. We have now few Directors and Joint Directors! Now we have a qualified CFP as our Financial Adviser to help us grow the Endowment Fund.
New Website & CRM
Another big achievement in 2016 was to revamp our website. We have got CRM and Enterprise Platform licenses for free from Salesforce. We have separate Directors for each of these areas to implement and maintain them. Our goal for 2017 is to be able to help more eligible students. Our aim is to provide life changing opportunities through higher education for more people. We work towards achieving growth in every aspect and every department in TPF. Our goal is to improve the internal processes so that we can bring in more team members and be able to scale up the operations.
Looking forward for 2017
There is a lot to be done in 2017 and we are confident of achieving it with your continued participation and support.
With your overwhelming support in last year, the foundation is in a position to sponsor at least 20 more students for the year 2017. If you come across a deserving candidate, please be sure to refer them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Your referral could change the course of one’s career and life.
Once again, Happy New Year, Makara Sankranti and Thank you for your support. Our deserv ing students really appreciate your generosity.
