The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) is the largest and oldest Greek heritage grassroots member­ship organization.  Chapters are in the United States, Canada, Greece, Cyprus, Europe and beyond. 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.

Our mission is to promote Hel­lenism, Education, Phi­lanthropy, Civic Respon­sibility, and Family and Individual Excellence.

Education

AHEPA’s commitment to education has been well documented throughout its history. Over $4 million has been endowed at the local, district and national levels to­ward the use of scholarships and $1.8Million is awarded annually.

 

Philanthropy

Philanthropy and volun­teerism have been pillars of strength for AHEPA. From natural disaster relief to rais­ing funds for the elimination of life-threatening diseases to making significant contributions to our local neighbor­hoods, AHEPA is at the forefront of charitable giving.

 

Civic Responsibility

AHEPA communicates the positions of the Greek-American community to elected representa­tives at the federal, state, and local levels, as well as to our diplomatic leaders.
