I have been receiving emails from readers asking if there would be any fund-raiser for 2017-18. At this moment, I don’t have any plans. This may change depending on any priority projects that come up or any direction from HH Balaperiyava.
Here are the snapshot of initiatives supported(ing) so far::
- Melattur Patasala Support – ongoing
- T.V.Kovil Patasala Support – ongoing

- Mahaperiyava jayanthi/aradhana expenses – yearly
- Vaideeka sambhavanai for samaveda parayanam
- Completion of Vaanam Paartha Sivalingam project – Karkeeswarar & Lakshmeeswarar in Kanchipuram
- Support for a vaideeka from Sringeri for his wedding
- Provide food for 51 rescued native breed ongole cows from AP. Doing this for the past 3 months bi-weekly.

Big thanks to Sai Srinivasan, who has been handling several of these kainkaryams through his satsang friends….Hats off to him for his dedication and commitment.
Thanks to Sri Shivarpanam Trust in Chennai who provides valuable inputs and guidance on several questions. Sri Pratyaksha Trust has been kindly helping us by accepting donations in India on behalf of KGF. We will seek guidance from both of them for all future projects as these trusts are blessed by Sri Balaperiyava and regular updates go to Him.
Few thoughts on new initiatives:
- Target more temples that require very basic support for nitya deepam/puja etc
- Identify any Kanchi adishtanams that might require some special attention.
The funds from 2016-17 drive will be exhausted in the next few months and would require additional support from all of you to keep this going….
Please visit www.kgpfoundation.org/support.html for support details….
Will always seek the blessings of Kanchi Acharyas to keep these going and be truthful and sincere to what we are doing….
Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!
