This group deals with smaller projects (generally below Rs.10 lakhs) to be submitted to a number of Auroville-friendly organisations. It collects, evaluates and prioritises projects and sends the selected projects to these organisations, which decide on their funding. It also maintains the list of projects that appear on the Auroville website for funding. Project consultancy and assistence with grant writing are also available. The group is Auroville’s officially recognised channel to Auroville International Centres, to the Foundation for World Education and to Stichting de Zaaier on all fundraising matters, and for endorsing all proposals for fundraising outside Auroville.
The PCG can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org , or phone the office at Town Hall, 0413-2622250
Apart from these groups, unit executives or working groups also undertake fundraising for their specific projects independently.
