Weʼve raised £3,857 to Help save The Tagore Centre UK
- London, United Kingdom
- Funded on Wednesday, 18th January 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Tagore Centre UK exists to promote the extraordinary works and life of Rabindranath Tagore, a myriad-minded literary genius, arguably Indian’s greatest artist and the first non-European recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. The Centre is open to all communities and cultures and is committed to spreading Tagore’s message of universal humanity beyond all geographical boundaries.
HOWEVER, our lease with Haringey Council is up and we have to purchase a new one in order for the Centre to remain at its home in Alexandra Park Library, North London, where it has been since it was established in 1985.
PLEASE HELP US…
We have set a new target of £20,000 - or as much as we can raise over the next three months. These funds will go towards:
• Extension of a new lease
• Administrative / insurance costs to coincide with the above extension
• The collection, events, classes and members’ resources
• A planning/fundraising/implementation so the centre is self-sustaining in the long run
Without your help, this internationally recognised centre, the only one of its kind in the UK, will close, leaving this generation and the next bereft of the amazing learning resources and special contacts the centre has collated over the years.
So please give as little or as much as you can and share this link with friends and supporters of Tagore. Please leave your name and a message of support; we would be grateful to receive any amount... whether its £10 or £100, every penny counts.
