North South Foundation was incorporated in 1989 as a not-for-profit entity in Illinois. It was granted tax-exempt status by the IRS under the 501(c)(3) program. Its federal tax ID is 36-3659998.

The program started in 1989 with one scholarship.

North South Foundation has chapters in several states. Each chapter is run by a group of dedicated and committed volunteers who manage the process beginning with publicity to screening and awarding scholarships. Each team takes total responsibility.

Yes. You can designate to a college or area of your choice. One donor, for example, has been contributing money for 15 scholarships to Telangana, a backward area in Andhra Pradesh. Similarly there are designated scholarships in Bangalore and Kolkata.In designation, one should keep in mind that a scholarship should be given for not just one year but through graduation.Thus it may cost $800 to graduate a student through college.Also it is not a good idea to just sponsor one student and then wait for the student to graduate before giving to another student.Ideally one new student should be selected each year.Thus in a four - year college, there will be four students receiving scholarships at the end of the fourth year.Thus a contributor should ideally commit $800 every year to be able to sponsor a new student each year.Obviously all of this discussion applies only to designated scholarships.Without designation, you can make any amount of contribution you like.In order to avail this opportunity, you simply write a letter to the Foundation along with your contribution.The scholarships can also be given in the name of a parent, spouse, or child.
