Symbiosis Society Foundation

The Philanthropic Organization of the Symbiosis Society


The Symbiosis Society has been set up under the Bombay Public Trust act, 1950 and over the years it has promoted several educational institutions. During these years, it has provided financial support to needy and meritorious students in pursuing education. However, these efforts have not been done in a systematic, planned and conscious manner. Now, the Society has undertaken a systematic and planned program of philanthropy to achieve its social obligation towards society and has set up a philanthropic arm, called Symbiosis Society Foundation. Symbiosis Society undertakes several programs to promote educational and other social activities that help the talented, as well as needy students, faculty and other members of the community. Symbiosis Society Foundation (SSF) is an integral part of the Symbiosis Society, but has a separate budget and a separate Advisory Committee to focus on educational and social activities and to manage the same. Donations received by the Symbiosis Society for undertaking the above mentioned philanthropic activities or for giving scholarships, awards and prizes are administered by the Symbiosis Society Foundation, so that all these activities are projected to the public in an integrated manner. Apart from the budget provided by the Symbiosis Society, the Society Foundation also generates resources through receiving donations from the well wishers of the Symbiosis Society, its alumni, industry and others.
