Who We Are

Greater Atlanta Tamil Sangam (GATS) is a tax exempt, 501(c) non-profit organization.

GATS is devoted to preserve and promote our rich Tamil heritage and to foster understanding, friendship, goodwill and appreciation between Tamil-speaking people and various cross-sections of the people of Georgia. Tamil is one of the oldest languages in the world, with literature books dating back 100 BC, spoken by more than 60 million people in TamilNadu, a state located in the southern region of India.

GATS also strives to raise, solicit, collect, and dispose of funds and donations for charities, cultural, educational, and humanitarian purposes, either directly or in cooperation with other registered non-profit organizations in the U.S.A. and abroad.

The complete list of objectives for GATS can be found in the GATS Constitution.
