Akran Marketing's Akran Foundation will focus on the Well-being of Children as Its Target Cause

Akran Marketing, an award-winning, green promotional product imprinting and branding company known for its social and ethical standards, today announced that the Akran Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Akran Marketing, would be working towards improving the education, health and well-being of children.

The Akran Foundation is a community-based, non-profit organization with a rich history of giving financial support and charitable grants to recipients within communities to improve quality of life. While The Foundation will continue to give to numerous organizations across the country and internationally, this new focus will enable it to strategize, set targets and strengthen its approach to best affect social change.

"At Akran, we are driving change at the individual and organizational level. We use innovation every hour to solve problems and create opportunities for our clients,” said Monica Channa, Executive Director of Operations at Akran Marketing and Director of The Akran foundation. "We want to apply this approach when leveraging opportunities in the community – using innovation to close social gaps, support signature programs and to develop community partnerships to better meet charitable objectives. Ultimately, it will be people caring for other people that will improve the well-being of individuals and societies, but the ability to deliver sustainable results will depend on innovation."

In addition to direct financial support from the Akran Foundation, Akran Marketing also provides charitable support through its Employee Charity Matching Program and Promotional Product Gift Program.

• Under Akran's Employee Charity Matching Program, the company matches its employees' personal financial contribution to any eligible non-profit organization, allowing it to produce positive social results and support the causes that are most important to its staff.

• Akran’s Promotional Product Gift Program donates imprinted promotional products at wholesale prices to non-profit organizations within the community and to charities aligned with its target causes.
