Bhartiya Mandal Foundation (BMF) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization built on the pillars of cultural awareness and community service. Our goal is to create an institution to preserve our Gujarati heritage through various cultural events while also giving back to the local San Francisco Bay Area community. BMF aims to deepen our understanding of our history and culture as Gujaratis and recognize our responsibility to support each other, our community, and the larger society. Bhartiya Mandal Foundation takes its inspiration from India Club which was founded in 1973 when they acquired the Bhartiya Mandal Indian Community Hall located on 440 Ellis Street in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood. This hall has been a sanctuary for San Francisco Gujaratis for decades offering a cultural events center which has hosted countless cultural events such as Raas Garbas, weddings, Diwali and Holi Celebrations plus much more. Many of our Board members have grown up and built lifelong relationships attending cultural activities at the Bhartiya Mandal Hall. BMF was established with many of the same goals as India Club and we want to carry on this vision while protecting their legacy as the first Gujarati cultural organization in the United States.
