Central California Society of India is a non-profit and secular organization, whose goal is to be a coordinating link among community-based non-profit organizations located in California’s Central Valley on issues of common interest and concern.


It seeks to build a sense of identity and community among people of Indian origin or those who have an interest in Indian culture. The population of people of Indian descent has been growing steadily and represents a significant portion of the people of Central California.

India is a country of ancient and diverse cultures. Since there’s no other organization to represent the Indian community locally, CCSI has taken the responsibility to preserve, protect, and share it with the rest of the general population.
