Why Rishta NJ is different than your typical meetup.

  • Rishta NJ is for singles who are serious about finding a life partner. This is truly the most important piece of information we’d like to convey. 
  • Rishta 2019, was the first time Rishta was held. We had over 160 participants with a close to 50/50 men/women ratio. Most working professionals. 
  • The event is organized, handled, and hosted by enthusiastic volunteers of URF who are in tune with today’s dating scene. We understand that swiping isn’t exactly working, and you cant really trust someone you meet online right away. So we’ve created a system that allows you to meet several potential life partners in a day and half. 
  • The event is fun, friendly, relaxed, and very productive with minimum restrictions, and maximum time spent in getting to know the other participants. 
  • We heavily use IT to register, process, match, and run the event. This helps increase the time on hand to spend with the person you truly want to connect with vs paperwork. 
  • Above all the process works. Almost 90-95% of people who attend the event walk away with matches, and names of people who would like to know them better. 

What does it cost? Rishta costs $200-$250/ participant. And $100 for each parent attending the event. 

Where does the money go? About 60-80% of it is spent in organizing the  event, covering venue, food, music, entertainment, printing directory of candidates, marketing, and more. The remainder is donated to build schools in rural villages in India, hire teachers and help unprivileged students continue education. URF is committed to doing a lot more, to learn about our other initiatives, please see here. 

United Rudra Foundation is committed to support medical assistance by running health camps in the USA, and supporting educational efforts in Rural parts of India. 

Rishta is hosted by URF, a 501(C) non-profit charitable organization registered in the USA.
