The American India Foundation works closely with corporations and foundations to fill critical funding gaps in our programs while enabling us to expand our work into new areas and accelerate impact. Many corporations and foundations partner with us not only to meet crucial development needs in India, but also to establish philanthropic and community engagement platforms across India and providing a nourishing and enriching environment for communities that they serve.
We are proud to feature some of our partnerships below:
