TNF Convention 2017

Tamil Nadu Foundation (TNF), founded in 1974, is the oldest and largest U.S.-based non-profit organization solely focused on Tamil Nadu. Here are a few highlights about TNF.

  • Implemented more than 600 projects in all the 32 districts in Tamil Nadu
  • The first significant fund drive was for the Madras flood relief in 1976
  • Some of our legacy projects include: Chemkit (miniaturized lab for schools), Smokeless kitchen for school anganwadis and computer training for rural students
  • In partnership with about 80 sister organizations (Tamil Sangams, India Associations, Temples and others) TNF raised about $ 1 Million for the 2015 December floods in Tamil Nadu. The funds were used to provide immediate relief (food, health camps) and long-term rehabilitation (renovation of damaged schools, libraries, community centers and building new homes)
  • TNF-ABC education initiative was launched in 2011 in government schools in Sivagangai district and has been expanded to 10 districts. More than 25,000 underprivileged students have been empowered through education since the beginning of the ABC projects
  • TNF Service and Education Internships, launched in 2014, is a unique summer internship program for U.S.-born Tamil children and youth to volunteer in Tamil Nadu
  • With the support of 1,000 Life Members, 25 Chapters and numerous donors in the U.S. and a full-fledged office in Chennai, TNF is actively involved in humanitarian service every day in Tamil Nadu.
  • Our Annual Conventions and Chapter events are not just social gatherings but serve as catalysts in enabling the American Tamil community to help uplift the needy in Tamil Nadu through Education, Women’s Empowerment, Rural Development and Health and Hygiene

TNF Central Ohio Chapter

TNF’s Central Ohio Chapter was established in 2015 in Columbus, Ohio. The young and dynamic Chapter organizes ‘Walkathons’ each year and has generated considerable momentum among the Columbus community to generously donate for it sponsorship of ABC schools in Nagapattinam District. Hosting the National Convention within a few years of its beginning is a testimonial to the ability of this Chapter and its passion to uplift the underprivileged in Tamil Nadu. TNF Central Ohio Chapter is looking forward to your active participation in the TNF National Convention that will focus on charity and entertain your entire family with a variety of quality programs.
