Learn about our history and work

We are looking to partner with Corporates and leading philanthropists to partner with us in overcoming the gaps in higher education funding in India to create world class institutions.

 

HEFA is a Section 8 Not for Profit company. We look to partner with companies and tap into the power of CSR by mobilizing CSR funds accrued from PSUs/Corporates and philanthropists. These funds will then be given as grants to higher learning institutions in the quest to uplift research and innovation.

HOW CSR FUNDING WORKS

HEFA is a non-profit venture created under section 8 of Indian companies act hence CSR funds from companies are channeled to improving research, development, and innovation in higher learning institutions. In other words, any company can donate to us and we will route the funds to institutions on the basis of their needs.

 

The beauty is that HEFA is a union government institution run by Canara Bank, a bank with 100 years experience in banking not to mention a board boasting top level education experts so you can rest assured that you are always dealing with a company you can trust!

 

“We are for giving real autonomy to quality institutions on all aspects. The IIM Bill, which was tabled in the Lok Sabha on Thursday, is an example of the government’s intention,” Javadekar added.

IMPACT OF HEFA ON EDUCATION

HEFA is all about scaling the standards of education in higher educational institutions by financing their infrastructure and creation of other capital assets. Our higher Educational Institutions were under funded and require new sources of finance to match their global peers.

 

Hefa will also encourage corporates and other philanthropic individuals to contribute for the same.We are therefore foreseeing lots of positive impacts in the future of education.

Improving the Global Rankings of Indian Institutes

HEFA is looking to spark a rise in the quality of education in higher learning institutions in India which will ultimately pave the way to improved global rankings of the institutions. At the heart of every top institution around the globe is a perfect mix of world-class education infrastructure and research facilities, two key areas that are the prime targets of this venture.

Financing the shortcomings in financing educational infrastructure

We recognize the fact that institutions have been pegged by inadequate funds allotted to them in the annual budget hence the need to develop a clever way bridge this gap. This is where HEFA comes in with a strategy of using funds from the market to supplement the funds from the budget.

Promoting R&D in Higher Institutions

HEFA seeks to enhance research and development in higher institutions through funding targeted at boosting research facilities and innovation. Our aim is to build these facilities by creating top class laboratories and equipping such facilities adequately hence allowing for high-quality research.
