What we've been up to
Ventech 2020 Covid19 Relief
2020 has been a challenging year for many. Ventech Solutions and the Kunduru Foundation could see the impact of the pandemic on our local communities. In an effort to help these communities, KF partnered with Ventech to make a change. Together, we were able to support 33 unique organizations, all of which are dedicated to making our world a better place.
American Cancer Society - Real Men Wear Pink
1 in 3 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Finding a cure and supporting the people we love is a top priority. The Kunduru Foundation is providing support to the American Cancer Society to help people keep on fighting. Visit www.cancer.org to see how you can get involved.
A Kid Again
In a time more confusing than ever before, we need our communities to stay strong. A Kid Again is an organization that we feel is essential to lifting our spirits. The Kunduru Foundation is proud to be a partner of this organization, and we are so grateful that they are still making an impact in these unprecedented times.
Alight - Be a light for justice
ALIGHT uses an app (think: Lyft) to match human trafficking survivors to the right attorney at the right time. We mobilize the legal community to unlock a fresh start for survivors. The Kunduru Foundation believes that this innovative platform can help lead the way for survivors that were previously left with no options.

Olentangy Model United Nations
Olentangy Model United Nations is a mock UN environment that has kids represent a country and advocate for its problems. Whether it is educational, environmental, or health-related, the students learn a lot from their fellow delegates and officers, and everyone works together to raise global awareness. The Kunduru Foundation actively supports this program to make it accessible to our future leaders!

Founded in 1995, A Kid Again hosts year-round events with fun-filled adventures that allows the children with life-threatening illnesses and their families get a timeout from illness and make memories that last a lifetime.
