The Founders of Cause an Effect Foundation have been the winner of the Prestigious Kauffman Community Award 2004 for his successful philanthropic efforts as a Social Entrepreneur.
Mr.Sriram Bharatam has been the first ever Non-American and the youngest in the world to win this prestigious award.Mr.Sriram was nominated for this prestigious award as a recognition to his contribution in creating an innovative fund raising model www.causeaneffect.org through which he generated funds for the victims of Orissa super cyclone in 1999 in India. This innovative model sensitized the common man to the joy of giving - donating by not actually paying and thus touching their sensitive chord which motivated them to make voluntary monetary donation.
He has since then been carrying on activities as a Social entrepreneur through his Charitable organization CauseanEffect Foundation. This thought provoking leadership sensitized many with the concept of Giving it back to the society and taking up the Social Corporate Responsibility, depending on the commitment they would want to make for this initiative.
The Kauffman Community Award stands as official recognition that entrepreneurs make a broader and invaluable contribution to their communities – beyond the confines of the business world – as engaged citizens.
