The Greek America Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1997 by Gregory C. Pappas with a mission to “promote, preserve and perpetuate the Greek culture, history and heritage in North America.”

With a series of academic programs for young people, publications, programs, concerts, and special events, the Foundation seeks to bring elements of Greek culture, history and heritage to the forefront of mainstream America, while uniting like minded people.

The Greek America Foundation has received broad support by thousands of donors throughout the nation, making one of the most progressive and active organizations serving Greek America and Greek culture and heritage in the nation.

In addition to the biennial Gabby Awards and Greek America Magazine, the Greek America Foundation hosts the biennial National Innovation Conference, selects Greek America’s 40 Under 40 and sends college students to Greece on its Hellenic Legacy Fund scholarships.
