AHEPA is elated to be the recipient of a generous $20,000 gift from Demetrios and Stamatoula Manolis, of Maryland, announced Supreme President George G. Horiates.
The Manolises made the donation ahead of #GivingTuesday. It will go toward AHEPA’s “Century Capital Campaign.” The goal of this development campaign is to increase the current endowment to $10 million by AHEPA’s 100th anniversary in 2022.
“We are deeply grateful to Demetrios and Stamatoula Manolis for their generous gift,” Supreme President Horiates said. “Thanks to their kindness and generosity, we have taken another step toward our ambitious Century Capital Campaign goal. Furthermore, our mission and the charitable programs that support it, are strengthened significantly.”
Brother Manolis, a member of Worthington Chapter 30, Baltimore, stated, “I have been impressed and appreciative of the Supreme President’s leadership, guiding AHEPA into the needed call to Defend Hellenism. It has been remarkable, especially during the pandemic. We encourage all members and friends to donate to AHEPA to ensure these wonderful programs, and the mission for which we fight, will continue for future generations.”
