Our goals and objectives are closely aligned with three of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals:

Improving access to food, shelter, education and medical care for the people we serve indirectly promotes achievement of the other critical Millennium Goals as well.

5. How can I get my company involved?
There are multiple ways in which to engage your company in the work of Tripura Foundation. The following are a few suggestions:
  1. Track project information to ensure that we work effectively toward our goals and objectives.
  2. Get Tripura Foundation added to your company’s list of approved non-profit organizations. This enables employees to select Tripura Foundation as the designate for their charitable giving, and to receive matching corporate donations.
  3. If your company has a corporate foundation, suggest Tripura Foundation for corporate funding or connect our staff with the right people within the foundation department. We are always looking to expand and diversify our funding base, and we would welcome introductions to any corporate foundation that is interested in supporting education or hunger projects in the developing world.
  4. Start a corporate fundraiser. Many individuals working in both small and large corporations have decided to launch fundraising campaigns within their corporations to support one of Tripura Foundation’s projects. These campaigns can center around holiday parties or perhaps a summer outing. Once the fundraising goal is reached, everyone who participated gets the satisfaction of seeing the final Tripura Foundation project come to life with updates and photos we provide back to your team.
These are some of the more popular ways in which people choose to get their companies involved with Tripura Foundation. If you have another idea, please let us know!
