Bryan D’Souza

A friend once quipped to Bryan – If there was a nomination for Volunteering Prime Minister of India, I would propose your name! Community service and giving back is an integral identity and a core value for Bryan. Having resided in the greater Memphis area for twenty years, he has been leadership positions in other regional organizations like India Association of Memphis, and Malayalee Association of Memphis. Bryan joined ICFGM in 2013 and has been working collaboratively with others to make an impact. With a passion to make a positive difference in peoples lives, he volunteers hundreds of hours every year and answers the call to help – no matter the source. His desire is to see increased engagement by the Indian Community in the mission of ICFGM. It all begins in his own home as he coaxes his wife Thresi and kids, Keith and Isabel to join forces in the quest for service. Keith and Isabel have been seen working by his side at most volunteer outings. Bryan recognizes Keith’s efforts through the years in helping with ICFGM communications and volunteer coordination. Bryan hopes to have instilled an undying spirit of volunteerism in his kids. And it seems to be working…..

Bryan and his family live in Collierville, TN.
