The main objectives of the Benevolent Foundation is to offer financial support to organizations in Poland and the Polish-American community in their missions; to give to their scholarship funds; to provide charity to the less fortunate within our aforementioned communities including those with medical needs, those who are orphaned or those who are challenged physically or mentally; to provide funds for disaster relief should the need arise.
We raise funds through a variety of means, including annual fundraising events such as our Meritorious Service Award, the O.K. (“Our Kids”) Fund Fundraiser, our traditional, bi-annual Debutante Ball, and generous donations, which are accepted year round for Foundation funds, or endowed through an endowment policy. Workshops on Polish heritage folk art are offered free of charge to the public, and Polish design holiday, note cards, and traditional ornaments are all offered for sale with one-hundred percent of the proceeds going to the Foundation.
