Fund Crunch

The Mandali is not rich as its history. Organising such a mammoth festival costs us about 75 lakhs. The ever escalating costs has become unmanageable. The reduction in the patronage of Government has added to our troubles. The Mandali will have around 15 lakhs of overdraft every year. Hence we have decided that its high time for us to attain financial stability, in order to continue our vision of preserving, protecting and promoting music.

About Fund Mandali campaign!!

The Mandali, now feels that it is high time that we attain a financial stability that will allow us to continue our service to Music. Hence we have planned for creation of a Corpus fund, which will strengthen our hands to contribute to the world of music in a larger way. The Mandali will use the interest earned from the corpus to Celebrate Ramanavami National Music Festival.
