Who we are

About Us

Karya Kares is a Texas-based nonprofit organization in the process of applying for tax-exempt status under Internal Revenue Code §501(c)(3). It is formed for various charitable, community health care, and educational purposes. Unlike many non-profits, Karya Kares has $0 payroll and all efforts are provided by volunteers so 100% of donation proceeds go directly to the cause.

Our mandate is to promote the public interest and serve the public good rather than to make a profit. We believe that solutions to large global challenges often start with small, local actions. Therefore, we continuously challenge ourselves to strive for excellence and build a culture that thrives on collaborations. We work with many NGOs globally to broaden our reach and make sustainable impacts. Our mission is the unique way in which our organizations Nitya Capital and Karya property management contributes to turning the philanthropic vision into practical reality.
