About AIF – Who We Are

The American India Foundation (AIF) is a leading international development organization charged with the mission of accelerating social and economic change in India. By mobilizing people and resources across the United States, AIF has raised over $45 million since its inception in 2001. AIF’s initiatives center around education, livelihood, and public health projects in India – with emphases on elementary education, women’s empowerment, and HIV/AIDS, respectively.

AIF also administers two programs: (1) the Service Corps, which develops young American leaders by placing them with Indian non-profits based on skills and need; (2) the Digital Equalizer, which bridges the “digital divide” by providing computers, Internet, and training to under-resourced schools.

AIF works out of New York and Silicon Valley in the US, and New Delhi and Bangalore in India. President Bill Clinton serves as Honorary Chair.
