Bangladesh-American Center (BAC), in Houston was established in 2001 under the umbrella organization Bangladesh Association, Houston - a non-profit organization in the state of Texas and granted the Internal Revenue Tax exempted 501(c)3 status. The organization is efficiently operated by individuals on purely donated time. While BAC Executive/Advisory Board of Directors are fully prepared to invest time, but are constantly faced with severe jolts and pauses from lack of funds to build a viable Center for the whole community to participate.

Nurturing the positive aspects of heritage, people from Bangladesh, will certainly add to the richness of American diversity. A proud and organized representation of Bangla language, culture & heritage is a valuable contribution to the American society. The Bangladesh-American Center will offer a wide range of programs, activities and functions including:

Social: A permanent physical location to display, demonstrate and represent Bangladeshi culture and heritage as well as facilities and exchanged to promote diversity and increased understanding of multi-culture and social integration. Pursue and achieve common goals, and preserve Bangladesh culture and heritage. Along with services in providing: Medical Care, Sports and Athletics, Language School, Learning & Culture Center and services to the community.

BAC deeply appreciates your valued consideration and has great hope in the spirit of philanthropic support. With this goal in mind the community raised the money to buy 3.94 acres of land in South West Houston at a cost of $137,500.00 in October of 2001. Since then the community has been working on the fencing the premises, develop an Community Organic Garden and Fund Raising activities for the First Building with Land Development.

With the goals being set for completion of BAC first building within the year 2010, the Bangladeshi community has begun to raise funds.

Currently, BAC has developed a steady income to maintain current trailer office and its operations via a committed group of donors known as Friends of BAC (FOBAC). BAC needs to raise additional capital to actually build the center that will cost an estimated $500,000.00. This will allow community to get to the real purpose of the Center. It is with these purposes of raising funds for building the Bangladesh American Center.
