Our mission is to bring cultural and social awareness by holding events that harmonize and assist the Pakistani American community. PASF originated in San Francisco in the year of 1974 by a few Pakistani Americans who gathered together to celebrate Pakistan Independence Day. As the local community grew, this group of pioneers felt the need to formulate a formal organization. With their dedication as well as the support they received, the Association was born. In 1992, PASF became registered with the city of San Francisco, serving the greater Bay Area. Since then, PASF has been actively serving its community by hosting various events throughout the year, continuing to spread awareness of traditional Pakistani culture.
