Karuna Charities Information



Karuna Charities New York, Inc. is a charitable organization founded in 1993. Since its inception, Karuna has donated donated $300,000 in cash and $200,000 in goods. Its main beneficiaries have been orphanages, homes for the elderly, institutions for the disabled, soup kitchens, battered women’s shelters and individual donations to those who need expensive, life-saving, medical procedures. In recent years, we donated $5,000 as part of the earthquake relief efforts in India. The money was used by Shree Bhojay Sarvodaya trust to assist the many widows and by the Art of Living Foundation towards the rebuilding of schools. In addition, Karuna has given $6,000 towards New York City’s UFA’s and PBA’s Widow’s and Children’s Fund. These are just two examples of the beneficiaries of Karuna Charities over the years.

Karuna encourages requests for aid from many different sources. The executive committee carefully evaluates each request and approval is given based on credibility, need, and urgency.

Every letter of thanks we get from a recipient speaks volumes for the differences Karuna has made in the lives of the needy.
