In the true spirit of GIVING BACK and GROWING TOGETHER, we wanted to spotlight some of the causes that we are most passionate about. Since 2016, VEERAH has proudly donated more than 1% of our revenue to social impact causes (as part of our 1-10-100 Battle Plan). As we continue to grow and gain scale, we hope to be able to increase our charitable donations.
