Making a Difference

BluePointe donates up to 5% of our annual net income to support various charitable organizations. Below are several non-profit organizations which we deeply respect and admire for their efforts in both our community and abroad:

> American India Foundation

AIF is devoted to catalyzing social and economic change in India. The foundation was born out of relief efforts following the Gujarat earthquake of 2001, when they found an outpouring of support from Americans concerned about India's development. Their goal is to contribute to building an India where all people can gain access to education, healthcare and employment opportunities and where all Indians can realize their full potential. They hope to build a trusted bridge between the dreams and aspirations of individuals who care about India and those who are in need.

> India Community Center*

The India Community Center was conceived as a place where every generation of the Indian Diaspora could find comfort in various facets of their culture, preserve and practice unique traditions and celebrate festivals and social milestones in a welcoming environment. It was also designed to be a center where people of other cultures can explore and experience Indian traditions and values.

*The India Community Center is an advisory client of BluePointe Capital Management.

> India Literacy Project

The India Literacy Project was founded in 1990 in the US by a group of young non-resident Indians, with the mission of being "a catalyst for 100% literacy in India." The ILP works in partnership with local NGOs and networks in India to enable and support their processes of strengthening communities. The goal is to identify and address gaps in educational services and bring about systemic changes through advocacy.

> Maitri

Maitri is a free, confidential, referral non-profit organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area that primarily helps families from South Asia (Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka among others) facing domestic violence, emotional abuse, cultural alienation, human trafficking or family conflict. Maitri helps to foster self-reliance and self-confidence in its clients and ultimately helps empower South Asian women to make informed choices on the lives they lead.

> Akshaya Patra

The Akshaya Patra Foundation commonly known as Akshaya Patra is a non-profit organisation in India that runs school lunch programme across India. The organisation was established in 2000.

> Sevathon

Sevathon is the walkathon that aims to set the standard as the largest social and service platform of its kind. It recognizes, supports, and nurtures a spirit of giving by empowering individuals of diverse backgrounds to unite and strengthen their communities. Walkers, runners, non-profits, sponsors, family members and friends are all part of the Sevathon family, as they enable each non-profit organization partner to deliver its message and further its cause.

> Milaap

Milaap is an online fund-raising platform based in Bangalore, India and Singapore and was the first online microlending platform that enables non-Indians and non-resident Indians to make loans to India.
