The International Executive (IE), which meets monthly in Toronto, consists of volunteers from the business and academic communities, including a treasurer and secretary. External auditors review our financial statements annually in both Toronto and Calcutta.
An appointed board of seven members oversees all the work in Calcutta and nearby villages, under the name of Toronto-Calcutta Association (TCA). A project coordinator manages all our projects and reports monthly to the Calcutta board and to the international executive. The vice-president deals with legal matters and liaises with the Toronto executive. TCA produces monthly financial statements and as well as annual audited financial statements which are reviewed by the Calcutta board and to the IE.
Project development and financial and administrative oversight are facilitated by yearly visits of several of the Toronto executive or general members to Calcutta.
Funds are raised in Toronto through local events, an annual mail request, and the employees’ charitable funds of several large corporations and banks, such as Suncor, Ontario Hydro and The Royal Bank. We co-operate with other organizations (such as Toronto Sanskriti Sangstha) and have managed joint events with, for instance, Results Canada and Gems of Hope.
The Toronto-Calcutta Foundation is registered with the Canadian government as a charity and participates in Canada’s annual “United Way” community fund-raising appeal. The TCA is registered in India to receive foreign funds and under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act.
