This list comprises funding agencies, which have supported specific research and pilot projects and programmes in Auroville and the neighbouring villages over the past decades, mainly in the field of:

environmental restoration

organic farming

rural development

education

health

renewable energy

appropriate building technologies

innovative urban planning

arts and culture.

Over the past decades, Auroville has received support from a considerable number of governmental and non-governmental agencies, foundations, corporate donors and private well-wishers in India and abroad. However, the financial challenge of building a sustainable model town for a projected population of 50,000 residents, which at the same time cares for an expanding rural neighbourhood of -- at present -- 40,000 people, is immense. This selective list comprises funding agencies, which have supported specific research and pilot projects and programmes in Auroville and the neighbouring villages.
