Yesterday was GivingTuesday. This concept was created in 2012 and has become a global movement stemming from a simple idea, encouraging people to do good.
In the years since its inception, GivingTuesday has brought attention to some of the most worthy charitable causes and programs. As Ahepans, we have answered every GivingTuesday call and taken it a step further. We’ve turned it into an entire week, and whether in word, act or deed, for five days beginning on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving we donate generously to programs which benefit charities we care about and help as many as we can that are in need.
Since its founding in 1922, AHEPA has donated millions of dollars in aid. During the great depression, AHEPA worked tirelessly to feed hungry families. During World War II, we worked together to raise $350,000,000 in War Bond sales to pay for armaments, food, clothing for our servicemen and women. In the 1950’s and 60’s we raised millions in aid for Greece thought the War Relief efforts and we built hospitals and medical centers. Throughout our Century of Service, AHEPA took the lead.
AHEPA is asking, during this season of Giving, that EVERY member to donate $100 to an AHEPA cause. We’ve included some helpful donation links for you below. If you would like to learn more about our programs, please visit ahepa.org. Your tax deductible donation can help a brother or his family in a desperate time of need.
For AHEPA Programs that benefit those in need, donate to:
Our Emergency Relief Fund assists our members in areas devastated by natural disaster and funds AHEPA’s humanitarian relief efforts in those areas.
Our Educational Foundation supports our future, providing a multitude of scholarships to students and facilitating the AHEPA Journey to Greece Program.
Ensure our legacy and donate to the AHEPA Capitol Campaign to be sure that AHEPA lasts for another 100 years.
