Established in 1974, Tamil Nadu Foundation (TNF) emerged from the passion and drive of a group of Americans with Tamil roots. This nonprofit’s simple mission is to help and support communities in Tamil Nadu, India:

TNF Mission
To empower the underserved in Tamil Nadu (India) through Education, Women’s Empowerment, Rural Development, and Health & Hygiene by enriching their educational, social, economic, and cultural status.

The Bay Area/SFO Chapter

The Bay Area/SFO Chapter stands as a beacon of support and progress for TNF USA. The chapter is driven by a shared commitment with TNF USA to uplift the state of Tamil Nadu and make a tangible difference in the lives of its people.

We strive to support the TNF mission by:

  • Sponsoring the ABC project, focused on educating underprivileged rural students at the following schools in Chennai District:
  • Supporting the Digital Classroom at the Government MMDA higher secondary school
  • Offering a Youth Online Exchange program (YOX Program) at the Anvarthikanpet school Vellore District , a program where young students in Tamil Nadu are taught soft skills, grammar and spoken english by North American youth, with the added benefit of a cultural exchange happening between the two.

Together, we can make a difference! 

Watch this space for more opportunities to get involved and how you can support!
