BENGALI ASSOCIATION OF NORTH FLORIDA
THE BANF STORY
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and enrichment of the rich Bengali culture and heritage. Although based out of Jacksonville, our members and operations reach diverse locations around the greater Jacksonville area, North-East Florida and Southern Georgia. We engage in regular religious, cultural and charitable events through which we realize our goals.
Founded in the year 2008, we have had 10 successful years where we have grown from a single event to multiple events every year. We harness a wide vision of engaging other organizations and ethnic groups (both Indian and non-Indian) to spread and learn from interactions with them. The 21st century global Bengali vision is dynamic and colorful. We intend to maintain just that in our activities in Jacksonville and surrounding areas.
