America India Foundation (AIF) was originally founded in February 2001 to address the devastating earthquake in Gujarat, India. It has now expanded its charter to accelerating social and economic change in India by connecting communities and resources across the United States and India.

Former President Bill Clinton is the Honorary Chairman of the AIF Board of Trustees and is active in its many charity-based activities.

CRY (Child Relief and You) is a charitable organization devoted to the welfare of underprivileged children and to make a better future for them. Founded in 1979, it has involved over 100,000 individuals and organizations, who have, through CRY, made that difference possible.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton is actively involved in children's causes and lends her unstinting support to organizations that serve children.

Other charitable organizations that we continue to support:
