Inaugurating the Workshop on Financial Management, Rev. Fr. Peter Brank, Director, KROSS said that the NGOs have to be transparent and accountable as we receive fund collected by various donors from a diverse group of people who give out of love from their hard earned income to see a smile on the face of deprived of opportunities, downtrodden and the marginalized.

Rev. Fr. Trevor D’souza, OFM, FCA was the resource person who drew all the participants into a lively interactive session where everyone threw a question and elicited an answer from the resource person. The participants belonging to different NGOs and FBOs had come from all over Karnataka.

The discussions were on Income Tax, FCRA, Societies Act 1960, Trust Act and various sections applicable to Not for Profit Organizations were dealt with. The participants reviewed the programme as very imperative which helps them to be more Transparent, Accountable and comply with statutory requirements.

Sr. Nancy Lobo, KROSS, Bangalore moderated the inaugural programme and Mr. John, Bellary proposed the vote of thanks.
