DREAM Run - YOU Support. We Run. They Win!!!

Why are we fundraising?
DREAM Run - "YOU Support. WE Run. THEY Win" - A run to add a smile on the face of 3 Special Children... 

WE shall be running the Bengaluru Marathon on 16 Oct 2016. During the course of the 21.09 kms run i.e. the Half Marathon, We will be raising funds for DREAM Foundation (an organization I co-founded with my school friends). The funds so raised shall be entirely donated to JSS Sahana - A school for the Specially Abled children, Bengaluru. We have a target of sponsoring the education of 3 special children for the next academic year i.e 2017-18 which comes upto INR 37,500/-.Join hands with us for this noble cause and make this DREAM a reality by adding a smile on the face of these special children who are indeed very special to our society. 

Our running team consists of Vikram S Ithal, Karthik Rao and Ajay Simha. Each of our run shall be dedicated towards one special child's education for an entire year.

We, at DREAM Foundation strongly believe that the specially abled children must be imparted with proper education and get the attention that they deserve. There are many parents of these children who aren’t in a position to educate them and provide them with the facilities they require. Hence there is a need to address this issue which is why educating the Differently Abled kids remains one of our major initiatives.  

About DREAM Foundation
Having a DREAM and building towards it is all it takes to transform any dream into reality. Once our dream about DREAM was conceived, efforts were channelized in the desired direction, the dream so conceived started to materialize itself. With a lot of motivation from within, WE at Dream Foundation want to transform our DREAM into reality.
Dare to
Revive the society
Exceed expectations
Aim for a better future
Maneuver your Vision.

Yes, that’s what DREAM is all about.

In a world that is so dynamic, it’s the need to stop and look at society and give time in understanding and correcting the imperfections in it and thereby enabling The Society we live in to have better lives.

DREAM Foundation is purely based on the concept of GIVING RESOURCES and TIME to Society and thereby upholding the spirit of Humanity.

Our objectives include imparting education and spreading social awareness. We at DREAM want to build a sustainable future. We firmly believe that Our Nation’s future would be secure by providing children with borderless education. We want to give everyone an opportunity to DREAM.

This DREAM of Ours is incomplete without your support, blessings and participation.

Join our hands for this noble cause. Let’s all DREAM a dream and transform it into a reality.

What do I plan to do with the funds?
The funds so raised shall be ENTIRELY donated to JSS Sahana School for the Specially Abled and the acknowledgement letter for the same shall be sent to all the donors. We will ensure that the entire process is transparent. I would like to thank Milaap for giving us a platform to do something good to the society.

1. The annual fees is Rs 37,500/- (Rs 12,500 per child) but the target set is Rs 40,500/- Why?
The increase in Rs 3000/- is the Transaction charges of 5% and an additional charge of 3% towards payment gateway fees. As a result, Rs 3000/- out of Rs 40,500/- will be towards these charges and the Net Amount raised i.e. Rs 37,500/- will be going towards the Education Fees. For more details, please refer this link:

2. Is your contribution entitled for tax exemption u/s 80G of Income Tax Act?
Since our organization is not yet registered, the contributions would not be entitled for tax exemption u/s 80G of Income Tax Act.

In case of any other clarifications, please feel free to contact us on +91 9916795695 or

Please find below the screenshot of the Registration Mail received from the Bengaluru Marathon organisers confirming our registration for the event and also find the acknowledgment receipt of the donation made towards the "Sponsor-a-Child" initiative for the academic year 2016-17 that was raised by us last year for the same cause through Milaap to support the education of 2 specially abled children.

Dear Friends

We have reached our target of sponsoring the education of 3 specially abled children of JSS Sahana School for Specially Abled. As mentioned in the previous update, we shall be closing the campaign with immediate effect and no further contributions towards this campaign shall be accepted. We thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for making this happen for the second consecutive year. Last year, all of you helped us in raising funds for 2 kids and this year you have been joined hands with us to help another kid totally making it 3 children.

We will keep you updated once the contributions received are handed over to the school.

This special support of yours will indeed be very special to the specially abled kids. Thank you all once again showing your faith in us. Looking forward to your continued support and blessings.

See you all next year for Our 3rd campaign.

Dear Supporters,
I thank all the 17 supporters for your contribution. Due to this overwhelming response and about another month left for the event, I am extending the education sponsorship to another specially abled child thus making it 3 children instead of 2. Since 3 of us are running for this cause, it would be great if each of us dedicate your contributions to for one child each.

I once again thank you all for your tremendous support. After reaching the said target i.e. Rs 40,500, there shall be NO further contributions accepted as we want to restrict it to 3 children this year. Please do spread the word and help us reach our target of sponsoring 3 children.
