Foreign citizens shall donate in this page in US Dollars ($). Indian citizens must not donate here.

As per the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act 2010, of India, accepting donations from an Indian citizen in the FC account will be a major violation of FCRA 2010. It will create a problem for us from the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India. Citizenship is the key point for ascertaining a contribution whether it is Foreign Contribution or Indian Contribution.
