To achieve its goal of strengthening relations between Hungarian American communities and Hungary and contributing to the activities of a thriving diaspora, the Foundation provides long-term strategic and financial support to existing and successfully operating Hungarian American organizations. Having strong, sustainable organizations, and thus a lively and closely interconnected community is crucial to the Foundation’s success. They are the ones who ensure that the diaspora and the Hungarian heritage live on, and, by the same token, the Hungarian American community is an indispensable asset in strengthening and broadening Hungarian-American relations and understanding.

Creating New Initiatives

Besides supporting existing organizations and programs, the Foundation creates new programs and projects that can fulfill current strategic voids. The selection of the new programs and projects are completely in line with the mission, values, and principles of the Foundation.

Building New Linkages Between Hungary and the US

The Foundation supports cooperation between US and Hungarian organizations and individuals through programs that strengthen the interpersonal, academic, and cultural ties between the two nations. To achieve its goal of reviving and deepening US-Hungarian relations, the Foundation initiates joint academic and research projects with US think tanks and academic institutions, exchange programs between the two countries, as well as fellowships, scholarships and internships
