The Akanksha Fund Inc. is a not-for-profit organization that works to raise support and awareness in the U.S. and funds educational opportunities for disadvantaged children in India. Our programs enable some of the most marginalized children in the world to maximize their potential and change their lives. The Fund works with The Akanksha Foundation (a registered Indian charity) to advise and fund the Foundation’s innovative programs, which currently serve school-aged children in India and related charitable activities.
Realizing that kids not only need good schools, but also strong teachers and principals the Akanksha Fund also supports the India School Leadership Institute and Teach for India. These three organizations work hand in hand with each other to reform education in India.
The Fund is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and is qualified as a publicly supported charity under the Code.
