From our humble beginnings, providing 1,500 free meals to underprivileged children in 2000, Akshaya Patra has grown to be the world’s largest secular school lunch program, serving 2 million children nutritious meals everyday to government school children across India. This would not have been possible without the support of our Corporate, Foundation and Individual donors. We build impactful partnerships with a diverse portfolio of corporations that share our vision of investing in children and youth. We invite our partners to join our mission by supporting us in any of the following ways:
Restricted funds or a corporate grant to fund Akshaya Patra’s program (school feeding, kitchen construction, kitchen equipment, model school program, scholarships for children), a research project, a specified campaign or mission goal.
In 2020, our Events include (virtual) galas and a speaker series. By engaging audiences online, we are primed for attracting mainstream audiences and building Akshaya Patra’s brand globally. In 2020, we will host 7 virtual galas. Each gala will be attended by 1,000+ individuals.Our donor demographic largely includes Indian Diaspora, HNIs, professionals in medicine, technology and finance. For corporations, these galas serve as opportunities to strengthen brand equity, fulfill corporate social responsibility mandates and deliver targeted messaging to our attendees.
A two-way relationship where both the nonprofit and the corporate partner leverage shared assets and activate the partnership to raise awareness and/or funds from a variety of constituents such as consumers. We would be happy to discuss and customize this partnership based on interest.
Employees can visit the locations where Akshaya Patra is working- a visit to our kitchens and schools in India can be organized for the corporate employee. The employees usually return with a strong connection to the company’s social responsibility after field visits.
