Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/05/2017 -- Edu­Dharma works for the betterment of student's life by funding for their education, sports activities and innovative projects by collecting funds through crowd funding platform. By showcasing academic/sports/ project achievements and activities, students are able to garner donations from supporters to further their educational career. Edu­Dharma aims to bring the needy students and academic advocates/alumni's together to remove the financial barriers often associated with education. Edu­Dharma helps students in creating a detailed profile of them and share their financial needs to raise money for their schooling/collegiate education.

Based on the concept of crowd funding, Edu­Dharma allows well scrutinized deserving students to showcase their educational progress as well as aspirations, and place their financial needs in front of registered Philanthropists/Alumni's seeking donation for their educational needs. Alternatively, in order to donate, potential philanthropists/Alumni's may also search deserving students based on various parameters they believe in as criteria, such the school attended, GPA, location, SOP, Achievements etc.,. In totality, Edu­Dharma creates the critically necessary bridge that is missing between the students and Philanthropists/Alumni's. Designed to make scholarships available to all students regardless of grades or background Edu­Dharma aims to make online educational funding available to students nationwide.Edudharma.com is a crowd funding platform for helping students from economically weaker sections to pursue their dreams. During the pilot stage, Edudharma.com has supported 200+ Students across India to raise funds for their Academic fees, Sports, Innovation and Social needs. The Platform as on date has raised about 60 + Lakhs online.(http://www.edudharma.com)

Recently the Android and IOS Mobile Application for Edu­Dharma was launched by Shri. Amitabh Kant IAS, CEO of NITI AYOG, Govt. of India.

Edu­Dharma has announced the successful Series A fund raising round from Mr. George Molakal, American Investor, and CEO of Alcor Fund, A graduate of Harvard Business School and Oxford University. George is keen to grow the company to a $200 million rollout within the next three years and reaching out to all five continents.

The core value behind Edu­Dharma is to create a more direct and transparent channel for alumni to connect with students, in turn supporting alumni engagement in on-campus programs, Student needs, and initiatives. Rather than crowdfunding being the focus of the platform, we see it as a technological tool for pooling resources from Alumni's and supporters for the institution and universities.

Edu­Dharma has already partnered with 85+ institutions and universities in India and has supported various crowdfunding campaigns by universities in South India. With the Series A Funding, the team is looking to advance the technology with various features and expand the partnerships with institutions and universities across India and Global level.
