Board and Advisory Council


The Hellenic-American Cultural Foundation (HACF) was formed in late 2010, and in 2011 became a not-for-profit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Our governing members draw from academia, the arts, literature, business, law and other professional fields. The Board and Advisory Council consist of committed members who believe in the mission of the HACF and are helping to promote the HACF’s programs and events.

Greek civilization is alive; it moves in every breath of mind we breathe, so much of it remains that none of us in one lifetime could absorb it all.
