The North American Jat Charities, Inc. was incorporated in 1994 as 501(c)(3) non-profit and tax exempt organization in New Jersey. Pioneered by the efforts of its founder, Ram S. Arya, the NAJC has served the community for over two decades in India, North America and elsewhere. The charitable instincts rooted at the foundation of the NAJC are manifested through contributions to the organization that enable promotion of positive social progress. 

"The funds that NAJ Charities, Inc. (NAJC) raises during the events like the one held at Edison Hotel on August 16, 2014 are utilized to provide scholarships to underprivileged girls to achieve their dreams through education,” said Ram Dhindhwal, NAJC Chairperson, Board of Trustees. “NAJC is a volunteer-run organization with no overhead expenses, and 100% of the funds raised are used for charitable causes."
