Maharashtra Foundation is a social venture catalyst

Established as a charitable organization under the laws of the United States, it is committed to the basic humanitarian principles enshrined in the U.S. Constitution namely freedom, equality, secularism and human rights. The brainchild of late Shri Yashwant Kanitkar and his friends, Maharashtra Foundation was conceived in 1978 in Rochester, New York by 10 Marathi families, motivated by saints like Dnyaneshwar, Namdeo and Tukaram and social reformers like Lokmanya Tilak, Agarkar, Maharshi Karve, Mahatma Phule, and Dr. Ambedkar.
