Endowment Fund – Our Lifeline

Keeping in view our future ambitious projects, expansion plans for the completed projects, and to meet our running expenses, the Governing Body of CDSS has established an “Endowment Fund” under the provision of Article 21 of the Memorandum and Articles of the Associations of the Centre. The Fund has been established exclusively for investments to generate income.

Under the definition of the “Fund”, Endowment Fund is a permanent and restricted fund only for investment purposes and not for any other expenses. However, income earned thereon can be utilized for project expenses.

The Fund is managed by an Investment Committee appointed by the Governing Body of CDSS comprising the following Members
