Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Educational and Research Institute (RKMVERI) is a not-for-profit educational institution that relies on financial support from government bodies and individual donors.
In keeping with the RKMVERI’s thrust areas (which are chosen with some social-cause in end) many of its programmes/courses are designed to address the needs of the marginalized, under-served and underprivileged sections of the society, and the rural masses of India. The Department of Disability Management and Special Education (FDMSE), and many programmes under other departments are run purely for social benefit. And with such end in view RKMVERI doesn’t and can’t rely solely on fees-collections for meeting the operational expenses and so it requires financial support from government and the generous support of large-hearted donors (individual and organizations).
RKMVERI earnestly appeals to well-wishers, admirers of Ramakrishna – Vivekananda Ideology and generous public for financial and other forms of support. We gratefully accept donations from anyone who wishes to contribute to RKMVERI’s mission of spreading education and serving the society in the light of Swami Vivekananda’s ideals and teachings.
The Government of India has granted 100% income tax exemption to the university under section 80G, subsection 2(a) (iii f) of the income tax act, 1961, by an order issued by the department of revenue, ministry of finance. This is a provision applicable to universities and academic institutions of national eminence. All the donations to RKMVERI will therefore be eligible for 100% exemption from income tax (in India).
