Coin Jar Program

Akshaya Patra's Coin Jar initiative is the perfect way for families and individuals to engage in giving to Akshaya Patra on a daily basis. Each household gets a jar in the Coin Jar program and treats it like a piggy bank. Money is deposited during special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, good grades, or promotions. Change can also be deposited in lieu of purchasing a soda while out at dinner or when emptying your pockets when returning from the grocery store. Our dream is for every household in America to have a Akshaya Patra Coin Jar.
