The Atlanta Jamaican Association (AJA) is a non-profit organization established to promote friendship, unity and understanding between Jamaicans and the members of the greater Atlanta community. The organization was founded in 1977 and incorporated on September 13, 1978 as a non-profit organization with 501(c) (4) status under the Internal Revenue Service Code. The Atlanta Jamaica Cultural and Educational Fund, Inc., The AJA’s cultural and educational affiliate organization, enjoys 501(c) (3) non-profit status with the Internal Revenue Service.
Based primarily on its range of services and how long it has been in operation, it is undoubtedly the most experienced and probably the most proficient Caribbean organization in Atlanta. Among its many functions, The AJA provides an Atlanta forum for Jamaicans to discuss strategies for improving their lives. The organization also assists the underserved both in Jamaica and in Atlanta.
