On January 13, 2023, AllianceBernstein, a leading global investment management and research firm, made a generous donation of 50 laptops to the youth of the Hadapsar Lighthouse during their maiden visit.

Members of AllianceBernstein’s leadership, including SVP, Chief Administrative Officer IMO Anthony Rizzi; VP, Director of People – APAC Kathy Kwan; VP, Head of GTO Professional and Organizational Development Allie Feiner; VP, Head of Operations Sathya Mohapatra visited the Lighthouse.

These laptops will have a meaningful and lasting impact on the lives of the youths from the underserved communities we serve,” said Aarati Hingne, Cluster Head Lighthouse Communities Foundation. “With access to technology, they will have greater opportunities to learn and grow, and we are excited to see the positive changes that this donation will bring.

AllianceBernstein’s donation is part of their ongoing commitment to corporate social responsibility and bettering the communities of their global offices. The company is dedicated to finding ways to make a positive impact in the world, and this donation is just one example of their dedication to creating positive change. AllianceBernstein AVP, End User Technology Lead Ashwath Thalluri will be holding in-person sessions to educate and empower recipients on how best to utilize and operate the technology.

We are proud to support the efforts of the Lighthouse Communities Foundation through the donation of this technology,” said Seth Bernstein, AllianceBernstein President and CEO. “AB is dedicated to the education and development of future tech talent, and we hope this technology will empower and provide these individuals with the tools needed to succeed academically, professionally, and personally.

The donation of the laptops is particularly meaningful during the COVID-19 pandemic, as access to technology is critical for students to be able to participate in online learning and people to be able to work remotely. By providing laptops to the Lighthouse Communities Foundation, AllianceBernstein is helping to ensure that young people from underserved communities have the technology they need to succeed in the digital age.
