Dear friend, Yes, Indian trust can receive donations from Non Residents or foreign donations. There are certain restrictions for Indian Trust to receive donation from outside India. The source of money is the important determination in applying FEMA on the recipient Indian Trust. In order to receive contribution in any kind or currency from foreign sources Indian Trust needs the approval from Indian government which is called prior permission or they have to register under FEMA

Yes, there are many trusts which receive donations from non-residents/foreign donations. Prior permission from Indian Govt. or FCRA registeration would be required for the same.

Hie Preetham, Yes, Indian trust can receive donations from Non Residents or foreign donations. There are certain restrictions for Indian Trust to receive donation from outside India. The source of money is the important determination in applying Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) of 1976 on the recipient Indian Trust. In order to receive contribution in any kind or currency from foreign sources Indian Trust needs the approval from Indian government which is called prior permission or they have to register under FCRA.
