The Giving Back Foundation® is a private charity largely funded by Meera Gandhi and the extended Gandhi family. In addition, the foundation relies on contributions from individuals and corporate entities, including raising money via the Foundation’s website, special events, and proceeds from sales of our exclusive products. 100% of the profits realised from sales of the The Giving Back documentary film, coffee table book, CDs, and DVDs are allocated to funding philanthropic causes affiliated with the Giving Back Foundation®.
As the scope and scale of our philanthropic activities continue to evolve, we will continue to maintain a hands-on approach with all our programmes, keeping us close, no matter where in the world these initiatives are being implemented.
