Reviews for Upakar The Indo-American Community Foundation Inc

Rating: 5 stars

It's a great organization. It is one of the only Indian American organizations that helps Indians here in the US. With 12% of Indians that live in the US under the Poverty line, it's critical. Not all Indians are doctors, lawyers, or attorneys. The more exposure, the more funding, the more students we can help - we get over 200 applications each year.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reading emails from grateful students whom's lives we changed.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

forward thinking members of the indian community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help every student that applied for a four year college and create an endowment fund that would allow it to be self sustainable for years.

A wonderful organization addressing a vital and growing cause - helping low-income Indian American high school students who have college aspirations achieve their dreams by providing them with merit and need-based scholarships. The team consists a group of highly-dedicated volunteers who ensure that the organization remains transparent and true to its mission.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the impact it makes on the kids who receive the scholarships.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

highly-dedicated and enthusiastic.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
