Donor Recognition – Tanvi Thomare

Tanvi has been a leader in Akshaya Patra’s Youth Ambassador program since 2015. In 2016, she started the Sapling Sale program with her elder brother, Harsh Thomare, assisting him in planting and selling the saplings. Since then, this program has grown exponentially, with over 12 volunteers selling saplings, sourcing corporate and individual donations across three locations in the Bay Area, raising a total of $5,500 this year! .

Tanvi has shown exemplary leadership by spearheading the Sapling Sale program across the Bay Area and multiple chapters; managing fundraising events by organizing venues, training volunteers and conducting fundraising activities. As a result, she has raised awareness, funds and recruited new volunteers for our program!
