The AHEPA Family Charities Facts

The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association AHEPA of the Palm Beaches consists of AHEPA Palm Beach Chapter#18 established 1923 and the Daughters of Penelope LEDA Chapter #59 established 1937. For over 75 years the AHEPA Family has been assisting immigrants to adjust and participate in the social, political and cultural life of the community. They gave the Greek-American Community a sense of identity, cohesion and inclusion in the American Dream. It projects the cultural heritage of Hellenes into the mainstream community-participating in educational endeavors and supporting local community philanthropic endeavors.

Our Philanthropic Actions!

AHEPA 18 members were the founders and organizers of the first Orthodox Christian Church community in Palm Beach County, St. Catherine and the AHEPA Family continues to be a major benefactor.

  • More recently the AHEPA Family’s educational, social and health care interests consisted of:
    *Promoting Hellenism-understanding the contributions of Greek civilization to the Western World and America.
    *Providing scholarships to deserving students.
    *Promoting the study of Modern Greek language at a local level and the preservation of immigrant history.
    *Developing adequate and affordable housing for senior citizens in the West Palm Beach Community with the completion of a 98 unit AHEPA 18 Housing Apartment complex in partnership with HUD.
    *Supporting cancer research at the Papanicolaou/Sylvester Cancer Center @ Jackson Memorial Hospital
    *Bone marrow and Cooley’s anemia programs.


To broaden its philanthropic, educational, health care and community social and cultural interests the AHEPA Family established a non profit charitable corporation in 1999.
