We are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Sikh Foundation International in 2017.  For 50 years, we have been champions for the recognition of Sikh heritage and values among Sikh and non-Sikh audiences around the world.

To commemorate 50 years of service, while continuing our mission in the coming decades, we invite you to join us for an exciting charter of events. These include:

  • A Golden Gala: The Pride & Promise at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, CA, on May 5th, 2017.
  • A Conference: Advancing Sikhs through Education at Stanford University, CA, on May 6th & 7th, 2017.
  • Art Exhibit: Saints and Kings: Arts, Culture, and Legacy of the Sikhs at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco from March 10th to June 4th, 2017.


We invite you to become a leading sponsor of the Sikh Foundation’s 50th Anniversary Golden Gala and Education Conference. As a sponsor, you will receive extensive brand & media recognition for your support of the Sikh Foundation, a 501(c) (3) non-profit and non-political organization. Your support will introduce an entire generation of young professionals and students to Sikh art and heritage. Most importantly, your brand will be acknowledged as the champion for a diverse and multicultural vision of America.
