Maharashtra Foundation contributed to three major disasters, Asian Tsunami, Katrina, and Floods in Maharashtra.
Tsunami Relief Fund
In the wake of unprecedented natural disasters that occurred from the beginning of 2004 the Foundation came forward to raise funds for immediate and longer term relief of the victims.
An amount of $ 40,000 was raised through the appeal to donors for Tsunami Relief. The funds were disbursed through four carefully selected organizations actively working on the ground: Save the Children, MS Swaminathan Foundation, AID, and Give Foundation.
Mumbai Relief Fund
$23,000 was raised for the Flood Relief in Maharashtra/Mumbai. These funds were used through grass roots organizations such as CORO. The amount was used for providing the immediate medical assistance to the slum dwellers.
Katrina Relief Fund
A contribution of $5000 was received for Katrina Relief. This amount was disbursed through an appropriate organization.
