LET THERE BE CHARITY SO THAT OTHER PEOPLE MAY SHARE MY FAMILY'S PROSPERITY
said Sri P S Govindasamy Naidu, the benevolent Philanthropist, who believed firmly that 'Charity begins at home'. He daringly defined charity as "Service to society through development of education, industry and the needy and the poor".
Thus was born PSG College of Arts and Science in the year 1947 to the PSG & Sons' Charities Trust which was founded in the year 1926 by the four praise-worthy sons of P S Govindasamy Naidu. The four brothers of the PSG family, Thiru PSG Venkataswamy Naidu, Thiru PSG Rangaswamy Naidu, Thiru PSG Ganga Naidu and Thiru PSG Narayanaswamy Naidu took "Charity through Education" with great missionary zeal.
