Indian Fine Arts Society, a cultural Organisation promoting Fine Arts of Music, Dance, Drama and other allied activities is 78 years old and celebrated the Platinum Jubilee in 2007/2008.

A write-up on the various activities of our society is given along side for your kind information.

Cultural Organization like ours do not earn any regular income except the paltry interest from fixed deposits invested in banks out of the funds saved/generated during the past. For defraying our annual expenses we purely depend on the munificence of Rasikas, Donors, Endowers, Philanthropists and large hearted individuals/companies who sponsor our monthly programmers and also the Annual Music Festival in December/January every year and augment our earnings to meet our expenses.

We do not have our own building to conduct our programmes but have to depend on rented accommodation, the availability of which is becoming scarce with escalating rentals.

We are therefore making this earnest appeal to you to help us out to continue our activities to the maximum rasika satisfaction, which is impossible with out funds from one and all. We also intend to build up a CORPUS fund out your generous help and contribution from other well wishers to have our own building.
