Centre Overview » What we do  
CAP today, occupies a unique niche, as a support organization for all kinds of incorporated charities, including grant making trusts & foundations, NGOs engaged in development work and NGOs providing support to other NGOs. It has remained focused on legal and regulatory matters pertaining to incorporation, taxation, accounting and statutory reporting.

CAP is not a funding organisation. Although, we conduct useful and informative workshops and trainings to help organisations to better their fundraising. CAP has also published a useful resource book on the subject. (The Art of Successful Fund Raising)

Also, CAP does not undertake any type of registration work. We merely guide and assist organisations and individuals with their paper work and registration processes with different government departments.

CAP also guides and assists corporates with their CSR (Corporate Social Responsibilty) initiatives often helping them find credible NGO partners or guiding them with due diligence issues. CAP has also helped companies like Titan, Thermax, Forbes Marshal, Zensar, Atlas Copco etc., set up their own corporate foundations.

Some of our achievements include....
CAP continues to remain the first port of call for most overseas individuals or institutions interested in Philanthropy in India. CAP enjoys global recognition thanks to it's involvement with organisations like Asia Pacific Philanthropy Consortium (APPC), Worldwide Initiatives & Network of Grantmaking Support (WINGS), International Centre for NonProfit Law (ICNL)
CAP has played a facilitative role in introducing, for the first time in India, a 'Masters Certificate in Resource Mobilization & Management' at the S.P. Jain Institute of Management Studies. Technical input for this one year course is being provided by the U.K.-based 'Resource Alliance', of which the Chief Executive of CAP, Mr. Dadrawala was earlier a Board Member
Our services cater to everyone's needs from International Grant makers & Corpotate Foundations to Nodal Agencies and grassroots level organisations
In 1991, the Centre launched the Bombay Community Public Trust on the lines of the community foundations in the USA. This Trust is today an independently and professionally managed trust that mobilizes local resources for local needs. It supports a wide spectrum of development initiatives in the city to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Bombay
Mr. Dadrawala received the ‘Karmaveer Puraskar’ in 2009, in recognition of his services to the Voluntary / Philanthropic Sector in India.
