We aim for all our projects to become financially self-sustaining to avoid reliance on donations, grants or subsidies to finance projects. Until we reach that point in a few years’ time (we hope by 2018) these are a welcome and important source of cash-flow to support the incubation of our ‘social enterprises’ on their way to profitability. These incubation costs include general and administrative expenses (covering our Paris and Kolkata offices) and research and development outlays (market study, technical analysis, technological development, community outreach and project pilots). As such, we are extremely grateful to all contributors who allow us to grow and extend our reach while retaining our essential status as a small and nimble organisation.

We measure both our financial and non-financial results and are happy to share them. Contact us for more details.

If you pay tax in the US you may be able to deduct donations to the Mlinda Foundation. If you pay tax in France you may be able to deduct donations to Association Mlinda. The amount of the reduction will vary depending on your tax authority.
If you do not live in the US or France, your donation to Mlinda will probably not be tax-deductible. Most countries do not allow their taxpayers to offset donations to foreign organisations against tax. Please contact your tax authority for further information.
