CAF India provides consulting and advisory services to local and global companies worldwide. These services are centred on developing employee engagement and community investment programmes thus giving companies an opportunity to fund local initiatives identified by CAF India.

CAF India's Consulting and Advisory services give companies access to specialist advisers and consultants to help them design, implement and measure the impact of their community investment programmes. We work closely with corporates and institutions to:

  • provide customised information relevant to the social, community and philanthropic aims and vision of the client
  • assist in identification of charity partners and conducting due diligence
  • devise a viable project or trust framework combined with an effective operational strategy
  • establish monitoring and evaluation mechanisms

In addition to advising companies on strategic direction, programme design and implementation, we also provide inputs on which causes to support and partner.

For companies with a community investment programme already in place, we help with programme reviews and provide ongoing support and guidance on programme implementation and management thus ensuring that objectives are met.


Find out about projects that CAF India has partnered with companies seeking to build and expand their community investment programmes.

Keen to extend and replicate its successful UK based volunteer programme, Community Pru, to Mumbai, insurance giant Prudential approached CAFIndia's consulting and advisory team. Community Pru seeks to set up partnerships with charitable and voluntary organisations and educational establishments with the objective of building relevant and sustainable relationships with the communities within which it works.

CAF India carried out a feasibility study for developing a volunteer's programme in Mumbai. It identified charities that provide support to the elderly and also those that support educational opportunities for children. It outlined the broad needs of a volunteer programme by matching the volunteer requirements of the identified charities with the volunteer skills of Prudential employees.
