Arpanam is an annual donation pledge, an offering in gratitude to serve our communities.
Arpanam is an initiative that allows members to pledge once and spread their donations throughout the calendar year instead of making one lump-sum donation. The pledges allow CMWRC to better estimate the donations likely to be collected in a year so various projects can be planned and executed with effective cashflow management. Arpanam initiative serves as the sustained means for enabling CMWRC serve our community for generations to come without the need to ask for funds for every endeavor.
Arpanam program allows members to donate towards various causes and events during the year and have all the tax-deductible donations counted towards their Arpanam Pledge. Examples: General donations and donations for Capital Projects, Gurudakshina and Sponsorships for CMWRC events, camps and Satsangs, Payments for Membership and Registrations for Bala Vihar as well as Enrichment Classes (Shloka, Arts, Language), Stock donations or In-Kind donations.
