Talents of Tomorrow

Talents of Tomorrow was a virtual talent show organized by Chetana Youth volunteers during the COVID 19 pandemic in April 2020. This was organized primarily to raise money to help families affected by the pandemic both locally and globally. The talent show drew over 50 participants both young and old, from all over the nation showcasing a variety of talents including singing, dancing, art, cooking etc… This event helped raise over $500 dollars which has been utilized by Chetana to support families effected by COVID by distributing groceries and other essential supplies.

Breakfast Fundraiser

Every year, Chetana volunteers organize a Breakfast Fundraiser to raise money to support all of Chetana’s initiatives across its 4 pillars including Education, Environment, Hunger Relief and Empowerment. The fundraiser is also a good way for Chetana volunteers to raise awareness about the various service initiatives and projects led by Chetana. This event is open to all members of our community and is well attended.
The funds raised through this initiative has helped provide 2000+ school bags to the needy children from Beaverton school district and helped support several other environmental and hunger relief initiatives led by Chetana.

Vande Mataram

In 2020, to celebrate India’s Independence Day, Chetana Foundation India, organized an online fundraiser called – “Vande Mataram” in India, to help raise funds for Chetana’s initiatives. Several competitions including cooking, rangoli, art work, speeches were included in this event and it was a grand success. Our volunteers in India raised 25,000 INR from this event and the money raised was donated to the Devnar Foundation for the Blind.


Chetana organized Jai Bharatham, a virtual fundraiser in the US where participants had a chance to display their unique skills in cooking, rangoli design, art, gardening, writing, and speaking. With over 86 participants, Chetana volunteers were able to raise $8,000. All the proceeds from this event was donated to orphanages in India including Abhaya Kshetram and Akshaya Kshetram in Tirupati; Amma Orphanage in Palvoncha; Charlotte Orphanage in Suryapet; Snehamandiram in Idukki, Kerala; and Shantiniketan in Palghat, Kerala .
