Adani Family Commits Rs 60,000 Cr To Charity To Mark Gautam Adani’s 60th Birthday

Ahmedabad: The Adani family has committed a donation of Rs 60,000 crore to various social causes to mark the 60th birthday of Gautam Adani and centenary birth anniversary of his father Shantilal Adani.

“In addition to being the 100th birth anniversary of my inspiring father, this year also happens to be the year of my 60th birthday, and therefore the family decided to contribute Rs 60,000 crore towards charitable activities related to healthcare, education and skill development, especially in the rural regions of our nation,” said Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani.

“At a very fundamental level, programmes related to all these three areas should be seen holistically as they collectively form the drivers to build an equitable and future-ready India. Our experience in large project planning and execution and the learnings from the work done by the Adani Foundation will help us uniquely accelerate these programmes. This contribution from the Adani Family intends to draw upon some of the brightest minds that have a passion to make a difference in the Adani Foundation’s journey to do more towards fulfilling our ‘Growth with Goodness’ philosophy,” he added.

The corpus will be administered by the Adani Foundation.

Azim Premji, Chairman of Azim Premji Foundation and Founder Chairman of Wipro Limited, praised Adani family’s gesture.

“Gautam Adani and his family’s commitment towards philanthropy should set an example that we can all try to live Mahatma Gandhi’s principle of Trusteeship of Wealth at the peak of our business success and need not wait for our sunset years,” said Premji who is regarded as one of the greatest philanthropists.
