India Association Of Minnesota
A non-profit organization that has straddled over four decades of community service since its inception in 1973, India Association of Minnesota (IAM) aims to build a strong and cohesive community of over 50,000-strong Asian Indians in the state of Minnesota. Through its three-prong mission of  Culture, Charity, and Connections, IAM seeks to build bridges of understanding between the Asian Indians and the society at large within the state and the country, connect Minnesota with India through events that promote cultural understanding and heritage, provide a charitable hand to causes here and in India, all the while functioning as the umbrella organization to the multitude of regional organizations in the state.
Here are the IAM By-Laws.

Our Vision

We are the point of contact in Minnesota for advancing the cultural, charitable, academic, political, social, and professional interests of the Asian Indian community. Partnering with other Indian organizations, we build a sense of cohesiveness within this community, represent it to the population at large and provide a voice to the State.

COVID Situation in India

With deep gratitude to all our donors we have now decided to close our fundraising campaign that was set up to benefit the impacted communities in India in the second surge of COVID.

We are extremely grateful that so many of you came forward to give in these times of need. Through your generous donations, we have been able to provide several Oxygen concentrators to multiple urban and rural areas in India, with the help of our partner organization - Sehgal Foundation.
