Infosys is committed to the communities in which it operates. This has led to the creation of Infosys Foundation to support the underprivileged sections of society. A not-for-profit initiative aimed at fulfilling the social responsibility of Infosys Ltd., the Infosys Foundation creates opportunities and strives towards a more equitable society.
Established in 1996, the Infosys Foundation supports programs in the areas of education, rural development, healthcare, arts and culture, and destitute care. Its mission is to work in remote regions of several states in India.
The Infosys Foundation takes pride in working with all sections of society, selecting projects with infinite care, and working in areas that traditionally overlooked by society at large.
At the outset, the Infosys Foundation implemented programs in Karnataka, and subsequently extended its coverage to Andhra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Bihar, Delhi, Gujarat, Jammu & Kashmir, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand and West Bengal.
'Bahujana hithaya, bahujana sukhaya' – for the benefit of many, for the happiness of many
We partner with non-government organizations (NGOs) to make a difference among local communities.
Infosys Foundation receives requests for funding of projects through the calendar year. Our panel of experts evaluates proposals in the areas of culture, destitute care, education, healthcare, and rural development. We prioritize projects by assessing their impact, and match funding requirement with availability of funds in our corpus.
The Foundation collaborates with stakeholders to monitor the status of each project. We adopt the build-operate-transfer (BOT) model of project financing to develop self-sustainable communities.
