The President's Fund now online
The President's Fund has launched its officials website; it can now be accessed worldwide at www.presidentsfund.gov.lk. The President's Fund was established under an Act of Parliament in 1978. The Fund provides facilities to a large segment of the population.
Sri Lankans not able to access certain specialised facilities in the health and education sectors are supported by this Fund. It also extends financial assistance for the promotion of religious and cultural activities.
The activities of the President's Fund were reorganised to extend greater benefits, particularly to the less affluent and the deprived since 1994. The activities of the President's Fund were initially published as a single webpage in the official website of the Government of Sri Lanka.
The new dedicated website of the President's Fund will enable the public to obtain in-depth information of all the services available to them.
Application forms for assistance for medical and educational needs are now available on-line, in addition to all other information pertaining to the President's Fund.
