GIBS Social Foundation (GSF)

Business schools’ job is to prepare leaders to make workplaces vibrant, financially successful, and driven by values. Because they play critical roles in preparing tomorrow's work force, business schools must take some responsibility for developing students' ability to discover and apply values. There's no longer any question that critical thinking about obligations to society must be as much a part of business success as finance and other traditional skills. It's up to business schools to make new ways of business thinking contagious.

GIBS has come up with a Corporate Social Responsibility Activity by initiating GSF (Global Social Foundation), A Societal Mission of Government, Business and Civil Society, which is inspiring people around the World towards providing quality education for underprivileged children and youth.

Activities under GSF

  • Donations to orphanages.
  • Arranging Seminars on World AIDS Day, Environment Day, on Birthdays of National Leaders etc.
  • Educating people on sanitation, cleanliness & good habits in villages.
  • Tree plantation in the approach roads.
  • Taking the orphanage children for a movie/outing.
  • Visiting old age homes and arranging some entertainment activities for them.
  • Organizing free medical/blood donation camps.
  • Donating used clothes, shoes, school bags, books to the deserved ones.
  • Free service at Govt Hospitals, where our attention is required by group of service minded people.
  • Arranging dust bins for collecting garbage in villages.
  • Organizing Yoga/physical fitness camps.
  • Visiting nearby Govt. School and educating them and donating them uniforms, textbooks, notebooks and pencils.

GIBS students will actively take part in all these activities and involve themselves in donation as well. This helps them see the problems being faced by society and will make them feel how privileged they are when compared to so many underprivileged people. Students will actively take part in fundraising activities as well from different sources.

Funding

The funding activities in GBF are broadly divided into 4 categories :

  1. Individual Donation : In this type of funding people can donate independently to an NGO. According to a survey most of the funds come from individual donors.
  2. State Funding : In a bid to promote welfare, ensure social justice for and empower disadvantaged and marginalized sections of society the Government provides financial aid to NGO. Any monetary help granted by the Government to NGOs is called State funding. GSF has submitted a project proposal and got it approved for all its schemes.
  3. Corporate Funding : The financial aid provided by a company, generally to a non-profit organization, to contribute to development is known as corporate funds. GIBS has tie-ups with various corporate sectors for corporate funding.
