Throughout the events of the past year, since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic last March, communities all over the world have come together as best they could to help support one another. The pandemic has undoubtedly caused a shift in philanthropic behavior, forcing charities, donors, and organizations to reevaluate the ways in which they raise and distribute philanthropic funds. Even political bodies including the governments of the United States, Canada, and other countries have offered stimulus checks to their citizens, and thousands of grants and loans specifically crafted in response to the pandemic have been awarded to businesses, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions to mitigate the detrimental effects of the pandemic’s impact on them.
One way the pandemic has influenced philanthropic behavior is through the number of businesses and private companies that have partnered with nonprofits and charities to help their communities not only survive but thrive throughout the past twelve months. For example, one company, Prezentium, which had already partnered with two separate charities in India and Uganda before the onset of COVID-19 as part of its giving program, recently expanded its philanthropic activities to include a partnership with No Kid Hungry – a nonprofit headquartered in Washington D.C. on a mission to end child hunger in the United States.
Presentations with Heart
Prior to last year’s pandemic, Prezentium was already an established corporate philanthropic partner to Adruta Children’s Home, a rehabilitation and care center for children in India, as well as the Sonia Nabeta Foundation in Uganda, which offers life-saving medical treatment and care for African children born with Type-1 diabetes. As part of Prezentium’s mission to make ideas shine through visually engaging slideshow presentations, the company has dedicated $1 for every slide they design for clients to their philanthropic partners.
“Our goal at Prezentium is to help busy professionals save time, reduce hassle and realize the potential of their ideas by helping them create clear and persuasive business presentations overnight” says Prezentium co-founder and CEO Rajat Mishra. “But each child, no matter of who or where they are, deserves a chance to realize their potential as well,” Mishra continues, “which is why we decided to create our Presentations with Heart program as a way to partner with and support nonprofit organizations that help reinforce this belief through their charitable activities.”
Prezentium’s charitable mission is one that perfectly aligns with those of its charity partners. For example, Ardruta Children’s Home is not only a rehab and care center for children, but also an educational facility that teaches children vocational skills, exercises such as meditation, yoga, and self-defense, and even lets them explore their innate potential through creative outlets such as dance, music, and art. An ocean away, the Sonia Nabeta Foundation in Uganda uses the funds it raises to help underprivileged African children with Type-1 diabetes gain access to life-saving technology and medical treatment for their condition for as low as $40. This means that even just one 40-slide presentation that Prezentium makes shine through their company’s services can provide one child in Africa with a year of HbA1c, Creatinine, and Leptid profiles to better manage their diabetes, while one 75-slide presentation Prezentium makes shine can provide a child with a glucometer (included with batteries) for 5 years.
Fighting with Heart Against Epidemics
According to Mishra, his company’s initiative to partner with No Kid Hungry in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic “just made sense”. When government-mandated lockdowns began sweeping across the world last March, schoolchildren throughout the U.S. were forced to attend their classes from home, but for millions of children whose families live below the poverty line, this meant that they were losing access to the school-sponsored meals they had desperately relied on to stave off hunger.
“How can we expect to achieve our mission of making sure children achieve their potential if they are going hungry,” Mishra asks, adding that for many children, school-sponsored meals are often the only guaranteed source of food they receive each day. No Kid Hungry further added on their website that, due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S., roughly 1 in every 4 school-aged children were placed in a precarious situation that could see them going hungry every day.
Since its inception, Prezentium’s giving program has raised over $250,000 dollars for its philanthropic partners.
Prezentium’s mission is two-fold: to help democratize great business communication by helping busy professionals reclaim their time and make their ideas shine, and to help underprivileged children around the world realize their potential through integrative philanthropy.
