Aruna Partnership is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with tax-exempt status in the United States. Our tax ID is EIN 04-3106756.
100% of your donations go directly to India to the people and programs you want to support.
“Aruna” is the root of the Sanskrit word for compassion and part of the name Arunachala — a Mountain in South India considered sacred since ancient times.
For more than 30 years, we have worked as volunteers to honor the cultural heritage of this area by funding projects that uplift women, children and impoverished families.
Aruna Partnership is run entirely by volunteers who pay all of their own costs. Our small organizational overhead is covered by sales of Aruna Designs handcrafts. This means 100% of your donations go directly to India to the people and programs you support.
Contributions to these three areas open doors for those in need and strengthen the entire community.
Since the pandemic began, Aruna Partnership’s donor base increased by 175%, demonstrating that donors trust us to be effective in times of crisis. Your generosity has helped our partners in India save lives and feed the hungry.
This program has expanded to include organic farming, solid waste management, renewable energy, reforestation, and environmental education. In June 2022, Shanthimalai received Tamil Nadu’s Green Champion Award for their inspirational work.
Our partner Shanthimalai saw in the daunting challenges of the pandemic an opportunity for innovation and change. Hybrid Learning workshops for teachers are leading to a more holistic approach that impacts how classes are taught at the schools, even as the pandemic wanes.
