Latest Update May 2016 TBGF would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one and “GOD” for giving us the opportunity to serve the less fortunate. From Dec 2008…every year that passes by was a learning and a truly humbling experience for us...

It’s been more than 7 years that we are reaching out the poor and needy of our society!!!
Recently we started our new project- Feeding the elderly homeless.

Every weekend we feed about 15 elderly beggars living on the footpath of IC Colony Borivli-W. We give them home- cooked meals and basic toiletries.. To run this project we just need Rs3000/-..

If you wish to join us or donate for this cause please do mail or message us.

When we started our NGO, we were helping Kursa an elderly aunty who is abandoned by her 3 children, she lives in a slum in sion. We need Rs3000/- every month for her ration and medicines. If anyone of you wish to visit Kursa or help her every month. Please do let us know. She is a very sweet soul who is lonely in this city. Along with these cases we also have our Project-“Education” which we are starting from this month. Basically you choose and sponsor the education of a kid by selecting the name from the list that we will send you for the next 3 months.
Right now we have 2 kids waiting for sponsors...There are more kids but we are waiting for the school and fees details. We will send you the list by end of this month.

Harshada and Vaishnavi Bhosale are studying in Abhinav Vidya Mandir in Borivli-E. They are now in 7th and 5th std. They are raised alone by their mother Mamta who struggles with their monthly fees of 750/- each as she doesn’t have a regular job. She was unable to pay their last 2 months’ academic year’s fees as she had no job. Hence the school did not give the results. Kindly sponsor these wonderful kids. Harshada specially is a bright kid who in spite of all the hardships is a good student. Please do call us if you wish to know more about them. Our bank details are given below, we provide 80G tax exemption to all our donors.

Sept/Oct 2015 THE BIG GIFT FOUNDATION SO FAR......

It all begin when I had a conversation with Deepika Bai, a maid working in a gym who wanted someone to help her to manage her debt, someone could help her in buying ration for few months so that she could save some money and repay back. This conversation stayed with me and I spoke to my husband and on 20th Dec, 2008 “THE BIG GIFT FOUNDATION” was born.

Deepika Bai was the first person we started to help with the ration. Initially I was collecting Rs100 from my friends’ n family to help the families. But soon realized it was too little to help someone so started to collect Rs200-500 every month. So now we do collect the funds but the amount has grown 'BIGGER" because of your love and support..So "A BIG THANK YOU"

Right we are supporting Kids with their education..this year too we were able to pay fees for the 20 kids that came to us..So God Is GOOD.. We are supporting widows and old women with their monthly rations and medicines..we had increase the support money because of the increasing cost.

RIGHT NOW WE ARE PLANNING NEW PROJECT which involves elderly homeless people living on the footpath there but we wish to provide for more.. we need volunteers/donation for this project.paths of our streets...they old and helpless..we want to start providing meals for them..good, tasty, healthy meals to them, right now we are planning to reach out to elders living near Karuna Hospital Footpath..
we are starting weekend meals initially but we wish to start on a daily basis..we need you support in this projects..we are starting to provide meals for 20 people but we want to provide for lots more..take this project to all over Mumbai..
we need volunteers and donation and ideas to go about it for this project..we are starting from this coming sat 24/10/15..we need your support and blessings..please call or mail us if you wish to be a part of this project.

TBGF also reaches out to people who do not have the means to pay for medicines or surgeries. Medical expenses can easily bring a family down. We help save lives.

Food is a basic need. There are many families that are trying to make ends meet. We help by providing everyday groceries to some of the families through you monthly donations.

We also try to be a medium that helps connecting the unfortunate with bigger NGO's as most of the needy are illiterate and have no idea where to look for help.

November 2013 Update

Hi Friends,

 TBGF celebrates its "BIRTHDAY" on 20th dec, we started our work in 2008 and still going strong..THANKS TO YOU GUYS FOR ALL THE LOVE N SUPPORT ..as we enter in our 6th year we pray to "GOD" that we as a trust continue to bless the less fortunate. The journey so far has been a memorable one..

It all begin when I had a conversation with Deepika Bai, a maid working in a gym who wanted someone to help her to manage her debt, someone could help her in buying ration for few months so that she could save some money and repay back. This conversation stayed with me and I spoke to my husband and on 20th Dec, 2008 THE BIG GIFT FOUNDATION was born. Deepika Bai was the first person we started to help with the ration. Initially I was collecting Rs100 from my friends’ n family to help the families. But soon realized it was too little to help someone so started to collect Rs200-500 every month.

Soon got 7 friends who shared the vision with me and we decided to register ourselves as a trust. It involved loads of paperwork but we finally got our registration certificate and the bank ac was opened in State Bank of Mysore, Borivli-W.

Every month was a learning experience for us, we reach out mainly to Kids for their education, their medical needs or women for medical or ration needs. We also raise funds for medical expenses or operations from time to time.

Another achievement this year was starting of free tuition centre in slums of Borivali-w, we have about 20kids coming for tuitions, every month we need Rs6000/- but we are able to do so because of your generous and continuous support. We recently had a Diwali party for them and now on 26th Dec we are having our Christmas Lunch for these wonderful kids, please mail me if you wish to be a part of this "PARTY"

Feburary 2013 Update

Dear friends,

We would like to share our vision once again with you all…so please do share with your friends and family so more and more like us will join our initiative to reach out the less fortunate of the society , be it rural or urban ..


Our vision is to bring together people who are blessed, to reach out to people who do not know whom to approach for their problems and needs.


Sponsor a kid's education....Break the cycle of poverty. We believe that education is critical in giving them a fresh hope for the future releasing them from the vicious cycle of poverty. You can sponsor a kid's education by paying their school fees/tuition fees.


Medical needs-We help people who do not have the means to pay for medicines or surgeries especially for their kids. Medical expenses can easily bring a family down. We help save lives through your timely donations..


We try to be a medium that helps connecting the unfortunate with bigger NGO's as most of the needy are illiterate and have no idea where to look for help…right now our current project is “Shindemala"


Our main mission is to create an awareness of the benefits of education amongst the poor.


So friends please continue to part of this amazing journey of 5 years and help us to be the “light” among the less fortunate..

This year we intent to reach out to more kids with “YOUR” support and time. TBGF will send a detailed list of kids needing sponsors by next month. Once again do come forward to sponsor these children and spread the word with your family and friends. We believe in reaching out to kids and making them understand the value of Education...we do not look for only bright kids but any kid who wishes to study…so please do get involved with us in this mission.

We also help out women in need…any kind of help which brings them out from debt..we buy groceries, medicines, repay their loans, help them to find a job, so that they do not remain dependent on us.

Hi Friends

I want to share a very good news with you all about Roshelle .A 16 year old girl for whom we were raising funds. She is doing very well and her heart surgery went off very well. Roshelle was very touched by the various people who came forward and supported her as friends and also donated towards her operation. She on her part decided to give donation of Rs25000/- to TBGF towards Ketan’s treatment. We are really touched by her this gesture of “giving” because TBGF main mission is making the people in need self sufficient and they in turn help someone else in need . Once this starts happening in our society the poverty will vanish from our country…so God bless people like Roshelle and Maureen.

Regarding Ketan also we have a very good news...his treatment will go on without any interruption since TBGF has collected enough money for him till July.He needed Rs12000 every month for his growth hormone injections.

We want to share a need of Uttakarsh, a registered NGO run by my good friend Ms Nilima Jadhav, they need 5 solar lamps, educational charts and 85 slates for their adult literacy project at Palghar for which they have trained five literate adivasis (Missionaries) to teach 150 illeterate adivasis. Please contact Ms Nilima on 9820733598 if you wish to donate in cash or kind.

Please continue to support our cause with your donations. The details are given on our website.www.biggiftfoudation.org
