We are proudly:
We support women:
NEEV, which means ‘foundation’ in Hindi, gives 50% of its profits to charities that reflect our funding goal, such as Power of Love Foundation to support women impacted by HIV/AIDS in Zambia. We are dedicated to helping finance projects aimed at empowering women, especially those in the developing world.
Our founder, Ruksana:
- is a board member at Stagebridge, a 501 c (3) non-profit in Oakland, CA, whose mission is to transform the lives of older adults and their communities through the performing arts.
- has taken the Founders Pledge.
With your purchases of NEEV products, we will do even more.
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.
