Fundamental problem: Many big companies use Corporate Social Responsibility funds and available resources for the societal upliftment, development of the backward economic classes and relevant activities to improve their visibility and social status in the society. But, many companies are unable to find suitable causes and NGO’s/NPO’s they want to work with.
CSR Plus provides a platform to the companies wherein they can connect with the required organizations and also helps them execute various events and activities. Apart from execution, CSR plus also helps companies with annual scheduling of CSR activities.
