Manipal Foundation (the Foundation) is the social and the philanthropic arm of the Manipal Education and Medical Group (MEMG). Dr. T.M.A Pai, the founder and guiding force behind MEMG, steered his energies to provide education and healthcare, two critical areas of human development, so that they empower people and improve their way of life. This legacy has been carried forward by his son and grandson, Dr Ramdas M. Pai, Chairman Emeritus, MEMG and Dr. Ranjan R Pai, Chairman, MEMG.
The Foundation has adopted this ethos of empowering people and focuses its initiatives in the five areas of Education, Healthcare, Livelihood and Vocational Skills, Women Empowerment and Environment and Civic Initiatives.
