Since 1928, The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) has been a driving force in preserving Hellenic Culture, philanthropy, directing civic and philanthropic activities, and providing business and social networking opportunities to the Greek-Canadian and Philhellene community.
AHEPA is founded on the principle that the best campaign for our ideals is through education. Our scholarship endowment exceeds $4 million and over $500,000 is awarded annually on a national level.
AHEPA is committed to the ideals of philanthropy and volunteering at the global, national, and local levels. From natural disaster relief to raising funds for the elimination of life-threatening diseases to contributing to community development. AHEPA is extremely proud of its’ generous humanitarian activities.
AHEPA has a history of educating political candidates and elected officials who align themselves with those positions that matter most to Phil-Hellene, including international relations with Greece and Cyprus.
FAMILY & INDIVIDUAL EXCELLENCE
AHEPA believes in the total family concept and with that in mind, created a youth affiliate with the Sons of Pericles & Maids of Athena involving youth with the Daughters of Penelope, our women’s organization, all working as a unit toward fulfillment of a common mission for a better life.
AHEPA is committed to preserving and promoting the principles of HELLENISM, HUMANITY, FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY. It is our mission to educate the communities in which we live on these values.
