Have been associated with American Service To India (ASTI) since 2004. Have contributed to ASTI to support multiple causes in India. ASTI has contributed more than $100K to the organizations that I support. This is well managed, low overhead Non-Profit and volunteers managing it provide good service to the donors. and thank them for their continued service.
Review from Guidestar
We have been donating to ASTI for a few years and have been very satisfied with the support they give to a range of non-profit organizations in India, small and medium size mostly, concerned with education, women's causes and children of under privileged or neglected sections within India. They have a very low overhead and staffed with a dedicated group of volunteers who seem to be doing excellent oversight of the groups they do support to assure proper use of the funds given. We expect to continue our annual support to ASTI and encourage others looking for good non-profits to explore this organization for their potential. Shankar and Malathi Narayan
I have supported causes for educating girls in India through ASTI. I found ASTI to be very responsive and the organizations they work with in India very reputable.
The American Service to India Foundation plays a significant role in furthering the medical and educational related needs in India. Besides that their primary focus has been the empowerment of women who are the central tenets of a society and who, when empowered can make the significant changes necessary in a developing economy. I have consistently chosen to disseminate funds through ASTI because of their close relationship with the Ramakrishna math and Mission centers in India - the most giving, compassionate and efficient organization, founded on Swami Vivekananda's vision of "service to man as worship of God" ideal. I am always confident that every cent of donated funds is being disseminated to the right cause and person.
