Our Story

At AU Small Finance Bank, we finance to help people achieve their dream for a better livelihood. Our CSR framework is also based on same philosophy with an aim to enhance the livelihood opportunities of people. A firm believer in the fact that every individual deserves equal opportunities irrespective of their socio-economic background, we are dedicated to empowering people by making them realize their true potential and helping them to be self-reliant.
We make our CSR initiatives sustainable & long term in nature with aim to uplift and empower the respective target group.
To further expand and strengthen the plethora of our CSR initiatives, we established AU Foundation as an independent non-profit organization and the corporate social responsibility arm of the bank.


CSR is not just compliance for us; it is the way we do our business. It is an integral part of our core dharma of sustainability.

To have lasting sustainable impact through our CSR we incorporated AU Foundation.

AU Foundation is born to illuminate the path, handhold and guide those who need it the most. We believe that everybody has the right to live with dignity and earn their livelihood respectfully. When anyone feels helpless, they only need someone to provide support and lead them in the right direction. We, at AU Foundation, are committed to empowering people.

We are driving sustainable approach to problem solving and contributing in crisis’s transformation. We also stand for positive social-economic and environmental adaptation of our society and striving for the development of humanity by empowering humanity and its inclusive growth.

We at AU Foundation, identified our core focus areas after assessing various fields related to social development sector and sustainable development goals set in 2015 by United Nations General Assembly which together comprises Health & Sanitation, Education, Skill Development, Financial & Digital Literacy, Women Empowerment, Rural Development, Sports, Environment & Sustainability and so on.

At outset, key objectives were recognized for the assessment and basis that we work to check the effectiveness of programs through our detailed framework which includes crossing various stages such as - How best we can do to excel? - How is it impacting social development? - Will this sector touch lives and add to the growth? - Will there be any impact on business? - Is this sector getting neglected? - What will be the loss, if we don’t intervene? - How to communicate to get impact on social media? Working carefully and ethically, we will continue to embed the evaluation process for sustainable projects.
