The Chetu Foundation, the non-profit charitable arm of Chetu, a global software solutions and support services provider, urged everyone to celebrate the meaning of National Philanthropy Day on Nov. 15.
“There are many ways of giving,â€ said Atal Bansal, founder and CEO of Chetu and the Chetu Foundation. â€œYou can donate, volunteer, or give a shoutout on social media about your favorite charity on National Philanthropy Day, which reminds us that we need to remember the less fortunate in our communities.”
The Chetu Foundation recently held a food drive for Feeding South Florida, which provides food to 700,000 food-insecure men, women, and children living in the Broward, Palm Beach, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties.
â€œWe are proud to be a community partner with Feeding South Florida,â€ Bansal said. â€œFor every food item donated, the Chetu Foundation will donate $5. We are proud that our Team Members have generously donated more than 100 food items.â€

The Foundation has contributed to communities worldwide, in Broward County, where Chetuâ€™s headquarters is located, and in India, where Chetu has multiple locations for operations and a skill development center.

$100,000 donation to the Joe DiMaggio Childrenâ€™s Hospital Foundation to name a state-of-the-art sensory room and assist children with special needs

â€œWe urge everyone to make a difference in their communities not just on National Philanthropy Day but all year round.

Together, we can make a difference.â€
