About our giving back
A rich history of philanthropy and volunteerism.
Philanthropy and volunteerism have been pillars of strength for AHEPA. From natural disaster relief to raising funds for the elimination of life-threatening diseases to making significant contributions from our Ramapo Chapter 453 for the Combat Veterans or Northern New Jersey, local EMS, Fire and police departments in the local neighborhoods, AHEPA is at the forefront of charitable giving.
AHEPA’s philanthropic deeds are evident in the restoration of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island; in the Halls of St. Basil Academy, a childcare facility in Garrison, N.Y.; contributions to several local foods banks in northern New Jersey and in the care packages we sent to our troops in cooperation with the USO; and in the building of healthcare facilities in Greece. Yet this only scratches the surface of the numerous philanthropic works of the association. In addition, countless charitable projects are undertaken every year by AHEPA’s chapters and districts.
