Types of NGOs- a Trust, a Society, or a Section 8 Company

The Trust is also called a Charitable Trust. It requires a trustor or settler. He is the one who transfers the assets to the second part, also called trustee. It is to benefit the beneficiary, which can be any third party. Lifting the lives of underprivileged or deprived people is its sole aim, which any group of individuals can bear upon registering it.

A society is a group of individuals that aims at promoting science, arts, literature, social welfare, and useful information. It preserves, conserves, and encourages society to foster in these domains. It may also be created for military orphan funds and maintaining the public museum or libraries. The Societies Registration Act, 1860 governs it and mandates its registration with the Registrar of Societies. It’s also able to enjoy tax exemptions.

A Section 8 company is very much similar to a trust and a society. It is formed for promoting and appreciating arts, science, commerce, sports, social welfare, religion, charity and environmental protection. The Companies Act, 2013 governs it for charitable purposes. The only difference is that they have better credibility or trust among government bodies, donors, and other stakeholders.
