The Kosciuszko Foundation 2021 Ball Postponed

The Kosciuszko Foundation 2021 Ball Postponed
The KF 82nd Annual Ball - 2017

Exactly two weeks from now we would have been celebrating the famous Kosciuszko Foundation Annual Fundraising Dinner & Ball. Each year, the last Saturday of April is usually a day of joy, tradition, and celebration of our Polish heritage. It will be the second year in a row that the Foundation has to postpone the event.

We had to go through an intense process in deciding to postpone the Ball, and we have considered all possible outcomes. This was a very difficult decision that amounts to dire revenue losses, but the pandemic is still spreading across the globe and your health and well-being are unquestionably the most important to us. There is beautiful energy during the social season of our Ball which made it even harder to cancel on greeting you at the Plaza Hotel this year.

Notably, the Kosciuszko Foundation Annual Fundraising Dinner and Ball has been held continually for over 80 years and has always been a major fundraising source. It sponsors our ongoing scholarship programs and cultural campaigns throughout the year. The KF Fundraising Ball is the major source of income for the Foundation's mission. Moreover, it is the grandest event, that we can meet all of you, our loyal friends and supporters.

Everyone this year is facing difficult times, particularly nonprofits like us. . Therefore, we ask you, please support the Dinner & Ball Contribution Fund and help us thrive through these challenging times. By becoming or renewing your membership and making a donation you are contributing to the Foundation's future. It costs as little as $50. You are the solution and the key factor to serve the underserved and keeping the KF mission moving forward.
Checks may also be made payable to "The Kosciuszko Foundation" and can be mailed to: 15 East 65th Street, New York, NY 10065.

We hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy during these uncertain times.

Thank you for your unwavering support!
