May 11, 2015 — The needs are many in Nepal and there is a long way to go before everyone has access to aid. We are pleased to share great examples of Asia Society’s corporate members who have exhibited concern and generosity for the victims of the Nepal earthquake and ongoing recovery efforts in Nepal. Some of the impactful ways these corporations are helping include the following:

BNY Mellon is providing a $100,000 corporate gift to the American Red Cross, and the company's Community Partnership Online system is available for BNY Mellon employees to make a donation through BNY Mellon’s Community Partnership Disaster Relief Matched Giving program.

The Abbott Fund is providing $200,000 in grants to CARE, the United NationsWorld Food Programme (WFP), and AmeriCares, and Abbott is also donating up to $100,000 of critically needed healthcare products to humanitarian organizations providing on-the-ground support in Nepal.

Asia Society is proud to have such generous community members who are committed to helping Nepal in this time of need.
