Every year, we look forward to connecting with our New England supporters to share how the AIF programs are transforming millions of lives by fighting poverty in India. But given the growing concerns around COVID-19, we have rescheduled the New England Gala to Sunday, October 25, 2020.
This was a tough call to make – The New England AIF Gala is an incredibly important event for AIF and it’s one of our favorite ways to celebrate with all of you – but we need to prioritize the health and safety of our supporters, guests and everyone who helps with the gala. Moreover, a State of Emergency has been declared in Massachusetts where they are strongly discouraging large gatherings and encouraging social distancing to prevent a public health hazard.
We remain committed to supporting underprivileged women and children in India. To date, we have commitments totaling $700,000 for AIF from its New England supporters towards our goal of $1,000,000. Let’s rally together as a community and support the needs of our beneficiaries. We urge you to make your donations and commitments before March 31, 2020, to be counted towards our fiscal year 2019-20.
Payments can be made online at aifnegala2020.givesmart.com. Alternately, checks can be made out to American India Foundation and mailed to 216 East 45th St, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10017. Please include *NE Gala* in the memo. All contributions will be considered an unrestricted donation to AIF and 100% tax-deductible.
We sincerely thank you for your support and generosity and apologize for any inconvenience. We look forward to seeing you at our gala on October 25th, where we will honor Susan Whitehead for her outstanding leadership and lifelong passion for Arts, Science and Philanthropy. Thanks again for your understanding and support.
