Vice President Secretary Treasurer
Sab Patrizio Ed Powers Bruce Kragenbrink
AHEPA was founded on July 26, 1922 in response to the evils of bigotry and racism that emerged in early 20th century American society. It also helped Greek immigrants assimilate into society. The mission of the AHEPA Family is to promote Hellenism, Education, Philanthropy, Civic Responsibility, and Family and Individual Excellence. These principles include a commitment to humanity, freedom, and democracy. Although a majority of the membership is composed of Americans of Greek descent, application for membership is open to anyone who believes in the mission of the organization.
AHEPA's deeds can be seen in the restoration of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island; in the Halls of St. Basil's Academy; in the building of our churches; it contributes over $1 million annually, to Greek Orthodox Communities through our local chapters; in the financial contributions toward the research for cures of deadly diseases. Yet, this only scratches the surface of the numerous philanthropic works of the association.
Briefly, consider the following few examples; AHEPA has helped to defray the mortgages
and bills on many churches; including the St. Photios National Shrine in St. Augustine,
Florida; AHEPA amassed $162 million during the United States' World War II war bond
drive; Construction of the 400-
