Sivakumar does not stop there. He is little known
as a Philanthropist, a silent helper avoiding
the limelight and media to show off his worthy deeds.
He is the founding trustee of Sri Sivakumar Educational
& Charitable Trust. The trust was founded in
May 1979 during a function held to mark Sivakumar's 100th
film `Rosappoo Ravikkaikari'.
Every year the trust supports the needy students.
Last year it was the silver jubilee and the Trust distributed
awards to six toppers and three physically disabled students
who secured the first three places in their school.
The charity fund amount was increased to Rs.1,30,000 this
year from Rs. 45,000 last year. He gave away cash prizes to
the toppers of the higher secondary examinations. Students
from various districts were present on the occasion with their
Sivakumar remarks that it is an attempt to encourage students
and motivate them to achieve more in their life.
A noble deed indeed to motivate students!
