Sri Lanka Foundation is a 501 C (3) non-profit organization formed in June 2003 by Walter Jayasinghe, M.D., a well-known Sri Lankan-American physician in Los Angeles. With its head office in Los Angeles, California, the main focus of Sri Lanka Foundation is to promote Sri Lankan culture in the United States and globally. Sri Lanka Foundation publishes “Expatriate Sri Lankan Good News”, highlighting cultural and social events of the expatriate Sri Lankan community with circulation to more than ten thousand Sri Lankan households globally. The “Sri Lanka Day Expo” is an annual one-day event presented by Sri Lanka Foundation and held at the famous Third Street Promenade of Santa Monica, California showcasing Sri Lankan musicians, dancers, food and businesses. The expo attracts nearly hundred thousand Sri Lankans and Americans from around the world to experience Sri Lankan culture. The cultural parade called “PERAHERA” is a main attraction. The “Sri Lanka Foundation Awards” is an annual event held in Los Angeles, California to render due recognition to deserving individuals of the Sri Lankan expatriate community in all fields of human discipline. The Young Expatriate Sri Lankans (YES!) World Youth Conference is a first of its kind hosted by Sri Lanka Foundation for youth of Sri Lankan origin. The YES! World Youth Conference gives an opportunity for the youth to network, learn about Sri Lankan culture and to develop plans to help Sri Lanka. The annual Miss Sri Lanka America beauty pageant and a Fashion Show hosted by Sri Lanka Foundation is another popular event for the Sri Lankan community to showcase Sri Lankan ethnic beauty to the American mainstream. Every year, the community looks forward to the Cultural Concert hosted by Sri Lanka Foundation, which brings unique Sri Lankan performers such as Pradeep Ratnayake and the Channa Upuli dance troupe to enthrall an appreciative audience.
