The Desai Foundation 2014 Gala


We had a blast celebrating our 15 years of impact with you! Thank you so much for coming out to support the goal and mission of the Desai Foundation. Thanks to your generous support we were able to raise $225,000, that with the matching donation from the Desai family, will allow us to continue programming to impact the lives of 250,000 people living in rural Western India and work towards our goal of establishing 10 more community centers in rural India.


A special thanks to Falu, Jon Batiste, DJ Kunal Merchant, Janina Gavankar, Seth Herzog, and Nihal Mehta for keeping us all entertained!

We also want to thank all of our sponsors for so generously contributing to the work we do and for supporting us as we continue to grow and impact even more lives!

Thank you to our generous sponsors!
