Kala Snehi Nidhi
The expenditure incurred in running the Society is increasing day by day. Existing membership fee and income generated from other sources is just enough to manage the Organization. The Society not only offers a professional platform for Members but also undertakes responsibility of preservation & promotion of India Art. All members could donate ₹3,000 per head on the occasion of their birthday. All such contributions would be collected in ‘Kala Snehi Nidhi’- a fund that can take care of many new endeavours of the Society in addition to benefiting the Artists’ fraternity. Note: All Donations made to The Art Society of India will qualify for income tax exemption u/s 80G.
