This group is comprised of alumni from the Salzburg Seminar, an annual program of American Studies for European scholars, business professionals and leaders held in Salzburg, Austria. Thiry six men and women from Tajikistan have participated in the seminar since the program began accepting applicants from Central Asia in 1993. The association was formed in 1995 with the goal of implementing concepts and initiatives learned in Salzburg to help the growth of civil society and democracy.

The association sponsors training sessions for NGOs on such topics as fundraising and organizational development, and publishes a "Philanthropy Digest." The digest is oriented towards encouraging joint projects and cooperation between the governmental, commercial and non-profit sectors in Tajikistan. Association members were integral in establishing the first Rotary Club in Tajikistan.
