"Live Here, Give Here"

Hindu Charities For America (HC4A) was conceived for the purpose of providing a platform to those living the American Dream to give back so that those living in economic hardships can rise and achieve the same American Dream.

Founded in 2010 and registered as a 501(c)(3) non-denominational charity (all donations are tax deductible), HC4A has helped economically disadvantaged students by donating school supplies and vocational training scholarships in Austin metro area.

Mission of HC4A is to “Bridge Income Disparity Through Education” with the motto “Live Here, Give Here”.

We hope to carry this work out nationally in the USA.

Support The Students


School Supplies – Based on data from Texas Homeless Education Office, we identify the schools with homeless children needing most help. We then provide them the school supplies that they distribute to the students. We have provided school supplies to Austin, Manor, Del Valle ISDs and many other smaller organizations that are connected directly to homeless students.

Vocational Training Scholarships – We provide broad guidelines to the institutions and entrust them to select students. The key points in the Guidelines are: The student must be living below federally defined guidelines. The main organizations receiving the scholarships are Austin Community College, Capital Idea, Manor ISD and some other organizations who work with students experiencing economic hardship.
