Administrative Funds


An organization, in order to perform efficiently and justify its purpose, demands sincerity and dedication from the people who are a part and crux of the organization. At the same time an organization also requires funds for the administrative functions ranging from office expenses, employee salaries to audit and record maintenance etc.

In first year after coming into existence, ROMF raised 20,00,000/- to set up our operations and execute our very first campaign - #DriveForChange through the year 2016-17.

During the year 2017-18, we raised 12,00,000/- towards our administrative requirements.
