The Neilom Foundation was established by Davinder K. Anand in honor of his son Dilip “Neil” Anand, who besides being a successful CPA, was very dedicated to helping young people. Whether helping them get a job, or in sports, he was an avid basketball player and sports fan, car enthusiast, loved to travel and he never missed an opportunity to help anyone in need around the world. Neil’s personality was vibrant and funny, and once you met him you never forgot him. He would have been very proud of his Foundation recognizing and empowering young people creating positive social impact.
To leverage the transformative power of mentoring and education through awards and grants that recognize, encourage and empower young people to generate and explore meaningful ideas and engage in activities with positive social impact that would lead to a better life.

- Plant the seeds for good health, work ethic, compassion, goodwill, service, and generosity in all young people.
Our program has reached over 400 students at various institutions and we have awarded grants to over 20 nonprofits through 2019.
Starting in 2020, we are enlarging our scope and are dedicating our activities to the creation of Neilom Fellows, young people who will be inspired and empowered to engage in activities that have significant social impact consistent with our vision.
Our goal is to create a community of 1,000 Neilom Fellows.
