The online donations through credit / debit cards should be used only for making donations to the Believe Foundation. In case you wish to make your contribution to OSOCT for any other purpose, please use the cheque / pay order / DD method.

All donations accepted through online methods will be accounted for as the income of the OSOCT and will be applied for the charitable purposes they are meant for. However, if the donor wishes to make a large Corpus donation as its long term capital, then he should only use the cheque / pay order / DD method and state specifically in his covering letter that the donation is meant as contribution to the Corpus of OSOCT. In the absence of such specific direction, the donation will be accounted for as income of OSOCT by the Indian Income Tax Dept.

The facility of making online donations is currently restricted to Indian nationals and Indian organisations, in Indian rupees only. In case the donor is a foreign national or a foreign owned or controlled organisation, then he should only use the cheque / pay order / DD facility for making donations. It is, however advisable to use the direct bank remittance facility from outside India for this purpose. The necessary instructions in this regard can be obtained by sending an e mail to believefoundationindia@gmail.com Please note that the credit / debit cards issued outside India are currently not eligible to be used for online donations. If you want to donate through the above options, you should send an intimation e-mail to our trust mail id and your valid passport details.

All donations will be accepted as donations meant for the various Human-care related activities being undertaken by OSOCT (Purpose-General) unless the donor specifies the purpose for which the donation should be used.

All donations will be eligible for tax deduction benefits under Section 80 G of the Income Tax Act as per the extant rules. OSOCT will be sending a receipt for the donation made, enclosing a copy of the 80 G certificate, to the address indicated on the registration form within 25 days of receiving the payment.

Please note that there is a levy of 3% charged by the Bank / Card companies on the online donation made through credit / debit card. As a result, in such cases, the receipt issued by OSOCT will be for the amount net of this levy. Please contact OSOCT by email or post in case you do not receive the receipt in the time indicated.

All donors making a donation of more than Rs 40000/- are, by law, required to give their PAN number on the registration form. The donors are most welcome to re-assure themselves that their donations have been used for the purpose they have specified. In this connection, they may contact OSOCT. In the case of donations exceeding Rs 10 lacs, OSOCT will be able to provide an audited certificate of end use if so requested by the donor.
