|The Danube Swabian Foundation of the U.S.A., Inc.
Die Donauschwaebische Stiftung der USA, Inc.
In this, our thirtieth year of work as a Foundation, it is good to remember the basic
purposes of our Foundation. Those four purposes as described in our bylaws are:
1. To foster, support and encourage the preservation of the customs, traditions,
literature, culture and history of the Danube-Swabian people
(a Germanic people of Southeastern Europe).
2. To encourage the pursuit of studies in the German language, in the history, culture,
literature, music and folklore of the Danube-Swabian people.
3. To provide food, shelter, clothing and other assistance to the Danube-Swabian
people in dire need of help caused by Acts of God, war or other disasters.
4. To foster and encourage the participation of the Danube-Swabian youth in amateur
athletic competitions at the national and international level.
In the interest of continuing good communication within our organization, we would
like to share our entire Board of Directors with all our membership. Please call on
your local representatives (Directors) or meet with them to make a donation or a
purchase. They are here for any assistance you may need with your Stiftung.
