A 501(c)3 nonprofit with tax-exempt status in the United States, Aruna Partnership is a charitable organization independent of all political or denominational interests. We work closely with our partners in Tiruvannamalai to determine funding priorities. All three of our partners are Indian nonprofits that grew out of Shanthimalai Trust. Although they are independent organizations now, with different areas of focus, they are mutually supportive and share one vision.
From the beginning, we have been guided by the principle of “help for self-help”. Leaders from the Indian community now run all three of our partner organizations. Having worked with integrity and dedication in the area for more than 30 years, they know who is in need and how to help effectively.
