How your giving helped

We know that you weigh the pros and cons of making a gift carefully – choosing which cause to support, how much to give, and where your money will have the greatest impact. When you do decide to give, it’s because you’ve thought long and hard about it.

That’s why we want you to feel confident in your choice to give to Central Asia Institute.

Here at CAI, we appreciate every gift we receive. Each donation is precious. Each donation is handled with care and used effectively. That’s our promise to you.
