Corporate and Foundation Giving

MUWCI and Akshara have greatly benefited from Corporate & Foundation giving from several Indian and overseas benefactors including Deloitte India, Deutsche Bank, HDFC Bank, KC Mahindra Education Trust, Kotak Bank, McKinsey, SEW Eurodrive, Tech Mahindra, and the Winterline Foundation. The Office of Advancement proactively identifies, initiates and manages relationships by recognizing the priorities of such large benefactors and aligns them with the strengths and outcomes of a UWC education.
