The NASRA Foundation was founded in 2020 at the express wishes of Kirit and Jignasa Patel.
This scholarship fund was inspired by Kirit's grandfather who wanted to provide education and jobs to anybody in his family. His father did the same thing to help others with education, shelter, and medical help. Kirit and Jignasa would like to continue their family legacy with the philosophy of helping his community through supporting education. They would like to provide financial aid to students wanting to further their studies in the United States. They are grateful for his grandchildren who help him set up this scholarship and hopes they will continue this legacy even further.
The NASRA Foundation is a fully formed 501(c) Charitable Corporation incorporated in California.
This foundation continues Kirit and Jignasa Patel's legacy of providing financial support to worthy recipients in need. The foundation is run by their descendants who actively maintain and monitor it's operation as well as make decisions on scholarship applicants. The foundation does not fund-raise but rather gives money that was allocated for its purpose out of the family estate. The primary goal of this foundation and its scholarship is to help students attend and complete college in order to become successful and have the opportunity to realize their dreams.
