Incorporation of Section 8 Company

A Trust is a legal tool that allows a person (trustor) to give legal responsibility of their estate to another person (trustee) for a third party (beneficiary) to receive, usually after a certain period of time.

A charitable trust is an organization where people (trustors) donate money and assets which are taken care of by trust managers (trustees).

This money received in donations is used in public welfare activities such as providing financial help to NGOs working for the promotion of commerce, art, science, sports, education, research, religion, charity, protection of the environment, or other similar objectives.
