The Kosciuszko Foundation Florida Chapter has Been Officially Inaugurated

Guests gathered at the beautiful New College in Sarasota to unite for a shared cause: supporting and extending the mission of the KF.

They were treated to a lecture by KF Chair of the Board, author, and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Alex Storozynski, who delved into the life of the Foundation's namesake, Tadeusz Kosciuszko. The timeless ideals of the Polish-American hero continue to resonate as strongly today as they did in the past.

Pianist Michal Drewnowski, Ph., a scholar of the Kosciuszko Foundation, and violinist Margot Zarzycka-Whitelaw of the Sarasota Orchestra performed a recital featuring works by Polish composers.

Huge thanks to the KF Florida Chapter's leadership, President Yolanta Roman, and everyone involved in making this event a truly memorable occasion!

The Kosciuszko Foundation, a renowned institution dedicated to fostering cultural and educational exchange between the United States and Poland, stands as a beacon of Polish heritage and transatlantic cooperation. Founded in 1925, the foundation honors the legacy of Tadeusz Kosciuszko, a Polish military leader and statesman who played a crucial role in the American Revolutionary War.

At the heart of the Kosciuszko Foundation's mission is the promotion of educational and cultural initiatives that strengthen the bonds between Poland and the United States. Through scholarships, grants, fellowships, and cultural events, the foundation supports Polish-American students, scholars, artists, and professionals, facilitating their academic pursuits and cultural enrichment.

One key focus of the Kosciuszko Foundation is celebrating and preserving Polish Americans' rich cultural heritage. As a vital part of American society, Polish Americans have made significant contributions to various fields, including science, arts, business, and politics. The foundation serves as a platform for highlighting their achievements and fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of Polish culture and identity.

Membership in the Kosciuszko Foundation offers individuals the opportunity to actively promote Polish-American relations and support the foundation's diverse programs and initiatives. Members gain access to exclusive events, cultural activities, and networking opportunities, further enriching their connection to Polish heritage and transatlantic ties.

Additionally, donations play a crucial role in sustaining the Kosciuszko Foundation's mission and expanding its impact. By making a contribution, whether through individual gifts, corporate sponsorships, or legacy donations, supporters enable the foundation to continue offering scholarships, organizing cultural events, and fostering educational exchange between Poland and the United States.

As demonstrated by the recent inauguration of the Kosciuszko Foundation Florida Chapter, the spirit of collaboration and camaraderie among supporters is essential to the foundation's success. Through collective efforts and shared dedication, the Kosciuszko Foundation continues to uphold its mission of bridging cultures, nurturing talent, and strengthening the bonds of friendship between Poland and the United States.
