We are proudly:
We support women:
NEEV, which means ‘foundation’ in Hindi, gives 50% of its profits to charities that reflect our funding goals, such as Power of Love Foundation to support women impacted by HIV/AIDS in Zambia and Center for Development of Disadvantaged People in India to provide educational resources and vocational training to adolescent girls. We are dedicated to helping finance projects aimed at empowering women, especially those in the developing world.

We founded NEEV in 2013 as one of the first 50 California Benefit Corporations defining our purpose and ensuring legally binding transparency and accountability. Becoming a certified B Corp also validates our commitment to social and environmental justice. The B Corp assessment is a great way of measuring our impact. NEEV’s B Corp assessment report is available to the public and our GIIRS report is available to investors.
