Who are we?
The Sikh Education Council (SEC) was established in the early 1980s to promote education of the Sikh way of life and to work within society for the betterment of all mankind. We are staffed by dedicated volunteers, funded entirely by independent donations and do not receive Government or community funding.
The SEC provides guidance, engages in research and presents information about the Sikh way of life. Our main goal is to undertake educational projects of interest to the Sikh community and of benefit to wider society. We have engaged in many projects since the 1980s, including the release of publications, providing advisory consultation, and hosting academic conferences.
What do we do?
If you'd like to run, swim, bake (or do anything else to raise some money), click the button below to get started. It's quick and easy to register and by doing so here at Wonderful.org, you can be sure that every penny raised will reach Sikh Education Council.
The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
