In this regard, TCS has few peers and can rightfully claim the high moral ground.
In terms of Corporate Philanthropy TCS provides Free of Cost services to various welfare societies and NGOs, helping their cause in its own way by providing Free of Cost (FOC) basis delivery of their documents, as well as material and moral assistance. Included in this list are organizations like SIUT, Sada Welfare Trust, SOS Village, The Citizens Foundation, The Edhi Foundation, etc. Through its Customer Magazine CONNECT, TCS communicates profiles and news of these worthy causes to its vast database of blue chip customers, providing them with its endorsement.
In the Education Development sector, TCS provides sponsorships and free of charge services to various institutes like IBA, LUMS, School of Leadership, as well as different student bodies.
