Friends Of The Banyan
Friends of the Banyan (FOTB) is a US based non-profit organization that was formed by friends and volunteers of the Banyan. FOTB was formed with a single goal in mind to support the Banyan through funds and other resources.
FOTB recently acquired 501 c(3) tax exempt status from the IRS. This means that any contributions made to the FOTB will now qualify for a tax deduction as defined by the United States Federal Law. Apart from fund raising, FOTB is also focused on increasing the awareness about mental health issues surrounding the people anywhere in the world and garner support for promoting the goals of organizations like the Banyan.
Friends Of The Banyan aims in promoting awareness of mental issues especially in women around the world. In India, The Banyan has been successful in highlighting these issues and has done some pioneering work in rehabilitating the affected women back to the society.
