WHAT IS AHEPA?
The American Hellenic Education and Philanthropic Association (AHEPA) was founded on July 26, 1922 in response to the evils of bigotry and racism that emerged in early 20th century American society. It also helped Greek immigrants assimilate into society. Today, AHEPA brings the ideals of ancient Greece, which includes philanthropy, education, civic responsibility, and family and individual excellence to the community.
WHY BECOME A MEMBER?
With over 400 chapters worldwide, AHEPA promotes true values of ancient Greece, which involve Hellenism, Education, Civic Responsibility, Family & Individual Excellence and Philanthropy. AHEPA is committed to advancing these ideals in our communities & neighborhoods. We invite you to join AHEPA and your fellow Phil-Hellene Americans in continuing these goals and ideals. This will enabled AHEPA to achieve leadership in championing our cause of education thru scholarships and the advantages of higher education.
