Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved in Bay Area non-profits for almost three years now in various capacities and can say with conviction that AIF (especially the YP group) has done a great job in spreading awareness about their causes and getting young professionals involved in raising funds to alleviate the hardships that face the underprivileged classes in India. No other group has access to such a large group of people ready to listen and participate. I am sure this group will continue to thrive and become even more crucial to community giving in India.

AIF's work is focused on outcomes at the community level. The organizations strives to learn and share best practice across it's diverse portfolio of projects, grantees and geographies. Importantly, AIF leverages investments to amplify impact. AIF strives to achieve scale by building sustainable partnerships with governments at all levels: local, state and national and in addition with financial institutions that can support wide ranging impactful community level investments in education and livelihoods generation. AIF's projects are designed to maximize 'value for money', resulting in high impact per dollar invested.
