Description

Capitol Area Telugu Society (CATS) is a non-profit organization devoted to the awareness and promotion of Telugu culture in the Washington D.C. Metro Area. It has been granted a non-profit organization status by Department of Treasury and any donations provided to CATS are 100% tax deductible. Formed in 2005, it intends to be the best amongst the Indo-American organizations. CATS was formed primarily to provide a choice for Telugus and to expand on services provided to Telugus in the Capitol Area. CATS will be providing new services in several areas. CATS will be active and contribute back to communities we live in through • Volunteering and Charitable activities • Professional Development • Business Development • Linking youth to the Telugu owned businesses via internships and mentorship`s, a long overdue service that our community needs. • Participation in the local, regional, and national social, cultural, and sports activities Also, CATS is bringing forth a novel idea by providing a platform to anyone in the community to bring forward a new idea in the interest of the community to be fully developed into a project (a small idea or a big one). This allows the organization to be very open by serving as an “incubator” for great ideas. Finally, CATS is an innovator when it comes to new ideas and is designed to be the “next-generation” type of organization. For example, there is strong emphasis to include our youth in the operational aspects of the organization. To encourage and promote the cultural and religious functions of the Telugu community. To invite and honor literary, scientific, and religious dignitaries of interest to the CATS members. To seek funds to buy, construct, manage, and operate a permanent building facility for Telugu community residing in Capitol Area. To promote better communication among the CATS members. To act as an agency to collect donations for educational and socio-economical development of the needy, and transfer funds to charities. To organize other functions as required which will involve the participation of the CATS members. To Promote interaction and contribution in the Volunteering, Charitable, and Social activities in the communities where CATS members reside. To Promote The Telugu Language, Cultural & Religious activities. To promote mentoring and business development opportunities . Representing Telugus as a strong, stable, united community . Use our top talent in IT, Medical Sciences, Businesses and Small Businesses to influence younger generation by organizing seminars to nurture entrepreneurial spirit and help the society at large.Annapoorna committee is probably the most organized and the largest team within CATS with 40+ active members. This committee gets together on a quarterly basis to cook and serve food for the less fortunate in our communities that we live in. During the last such serving about 20+ Annapoorna committee members partnered with Hofe for Humanity, another charitable organization and cooked and served 3000 meals and raised $1500 for the DC Kitchen.
