Times Foundation is a development house set up by the Times of India Group to promote equitable, inclusive and sustainable development, facilitating affirmative interventions for self-development, education, health, women's empowerment, environment and disaster management. This Foundation acts as a catalyst, primarily through information dissemination, issue-based mobilization and fund-raising. Times Foundation is a point of convergence for government agencies, NGOs, the corporate sector and individuals to bring issues to the fore, heighten awareness, encourage dialogue and deliberation to synergise initiatives for inclusive and equitable socio-economic development.

The interventions of the Foundation include advocacy and analysis, information dissemination and awareness generation, partnership building, promoting social initiatives among corporate houses and civil society, capacity building, fundraising in the focus areas of health, education, livelihood generation, relief and rehabilitation for marginalised groups like women, street and homeless children, the unemployed, the differently disabled persons.

Times Foundation is a strategic organisation, working on a macro canvas - connecting, highlighting, facilitating - creating effective bridges among stakeholders to ensure clarity of purpose and focused action. Times Foundation's role encompasses facilitating and networking and effectively connecting with all stakeholders in its pursuit of an inclusive society where people and their concerns are mainstreamed and effectively addressed.


Public Private Partnerships

The Foundation believes that public-private partnerships and e-governance are the key catalysts that would drive the future development agenda. To this end it has been raising awareness on these issues through conferences and meetings with civil society organisations and government agencies at various levels.

Public Policy Advocacy

Any initiative which seeks to analyse, examine and eventually change or amend public policy has to operate in an atmosphere of awareness and debate. TF promotes dialogue between the policy makers and grass root organisations to assess as many areas of policy impact as possible. In case of yet to be implemented policies this process lessens the chances that a given policy will have unexpected or unintended consequences

Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility is one of the least understood stakeholders in the Indian development sector today. Lack of understanding and inadequately trained personnel are severely hampering the reach and effectiveness of CSR programmes. TF aims to bring professionalism and transparency in CSR programmes through a systematic process of information dissemination and skill enhancement.

Capacity Building

TF's capacity building initiatives centre on equipping NGO's with knowledge and skills required to enable them to evolve and make meaningful contributions in their field of operations. This assistance includes human resource and organisational development.

Information Dissemination

Information dissemination is the primary tool used by TF to further its objectives and scope of activities. Awareness, understanding and knowledge are the main weapons which impel the initial steps towards any resolution and progress. Recognising the importance of clear, verifiable, unprejudiced data and its role in bringing about issue-based mobilization, TF is building a robust information network consisting of a website, e-newsletter and a quarterly magazine.
