Gujarat State Non Resident Gujarati's Foundation
Gujarat State Non-Resident Gujaratis' Foundation (NRGF) has been established by the Government of Gujarat to further the common interests, concerns and historical ties that bind the people of Gujarat to NRGs (Non- Resident Gujaratis, or people of Gujarati origin living outside Gujarat, in other states within India as well as places outside the country) with a firm belief that the contact and friendship established through programs of the foundation can go a long way towards generating mutual benefits for the people of Gujarat as well as NRGs and achieving avowed objectives of the NRGF.
The objectives of the Gujarat State Non Resident Gujaratis Foundation ("Gujarat Rajya Bin Niwasi Gujarati Pratisthan.") are to explore the possibility as to how Non Resident Indians / Non Resident Gujratis (NRIs/ NRGs) can play vital role in the development of the state and to identify the areas where Government can be of assistance to NRIs / NRGs. In short time, with active interaction with NRIs / NRGs the FOUNDATION has identified several areas and has initiated actions.
District Committees for NRIs affairs
District Level Committees have been formed under the Chairmanship of the District Collector to interact with the NRIs regarding their problems & issues. Non Govt. members have also been appointed who would interact with the NRIs on regular basis.

(GSOD) was founded in 1975 and has become an icon in Michigan community. GSOD is one of the largest ethnic, cultural organizations in the entire mid west area. The goal of GSOD was to unite all Gujarati people under one roof and to promote and preserve our culture, heritage, language, social and cultural awareness and respect of Gujarat, India by providing a platform to Gujarati community while serving the community needs.
The activities developed steadily through the past 30+ years and have culminated in a strong and vibrant Gujarati cultural organization. The foundation of our Samaj is strong due to the hard work and dedication of our past and present Executive Committee and Board of Trustee leaders, volunteers, as well as the ongoing support from our Gujarati community. The commitment of its strong cohesive membership has never looked back.
Gujarati Samaj has served a number of activities and services to communities and youth organizations, cultural activities such as: Garba, Raas, Gujarati drama, lok sangeet, Gujarati classes and festival celebration such as, Holi, Navratri and Diwali. Gujarati Samaj also has helped raised and contributed funds towards the Gujarat Earthquake in 2001, Tsunami in 2004, Geetmala Foundation in 2005, and the recent floods in Gujarat. Gujarati Samaj is a very strong community with over 900 members, representing a total of over 2,500 people.Today, our goal remains to increase our membership, invest in the next generation--our youth, and to build a central location for Samaj to provide resources to our community……from our children to our senior citizens.
As we enter into the new century, we want to lead Gujarati Samaj to new technology by providing Internet edge, allowing our youth to participate with excitement and enthusiasm, who will proudly continue to carry our heritage.
With the help of every Gujarati member, our goals and dreams can be reality. We encourage each and every Gujarati family to participate in Gujarati Samaj by becoming a member and participate in its activities and help us grow.
