The Arya Foundation
The Arya Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization that provides need-based adaptive equipment to children with special needs in St. Louis. It was formed in memory of Arya, the daughter of two co-founders. Born on Valentines Day, she taught us unconditional love and giving.
Arya was loved by her family every moment of every day. She motivates us and provides a vision for what we believe in. The Arya Foundation is more than an organization; we are a family trying to connect kids to the world. We give that push in acquiring skills that are taken for granted, such as talking and walking. We teach new skills to help kids be more social and promote a bright future in the community. We want to bring children closer together and teach compassion. Most importantly, we want to turn challenges into opportunities.
Just like the “butterfly effect”, we want our small actions to have a big impact. You can join us on our journey in creating a special world. Get tickets to our unforgettable events, read the stories of some of the children we have helped, and donate so we can provide more children with necessary adaptive equipment. The Arya Foundation is completely volunteer-run and over 90% of all individual donations go directly to providing adaptive equipment and services to children in the greater St. Louis region. It is with the amazing support of the community that we are able to continue improving lives.
The Arya Foundation is known for its events in St. Louis, from our fundraisers to our esteemed Disability Awareness Convention. We make sure that every event we do is inspiring. Learn about our upcoming events and get your tickets or sponsorship now!
Every child we help is called an Arya Kid. They have inspiring stories to share. Read about a few of the children we have helped and how they are turning challenges into opportunities. It will definitely bring a smile or maybe even a tear of joy to your face.
The Arya Foundation believes in turning challenges into opportunities. We try to listen in order to better serve the needs of children around St. Louis. It brings us happiness, too. Hear what families are saying about our impact in the community.
