Fund Raising & Donation

Many of our donors and enablers have experience with kidney disease and wish to help reduce and prevent the disease in some manner. TANKER is one of the few foundations in India that creates awareness and caters to the needs of underprivileged patients with kidney diseases. Many have also helped after hearing about or seeing the difference that TANKER has made in the lives of their beneficiaries.

Apart from this, TANKER holds one main fundraising event annually, called the Republic Eve TANKER Charity Nite. This event has taken place every year from the year of inception. Many local celebrities who support our cause attend the event and donations are made directly. One of the highlights of the event is the music or dance programme that is usually performed by a survivor of kidney disease or any other major ailment.

Our Goodwill Ambassador Actor Suriya also serves as a catalyst for garnering donations. He has also set a worthy example with a Rs. 10 lakh donation towards the Madurai Dialysis Unit.
