Ukrainian Association of Washington

The Ukrainian Association of Washington was incorporated in 1976 to promote the cultural, social, and educational interests of Americans of Ukrainian heritage, to support Ukrainian cultural and scientific centers in the free world, and to promote understanding in America of the problems and concerns of the people of Ukraine, especially in their struggle for freedom. Led by a Board of ten directors, the club conducts two general meetings per year, sponsors an International Dance (February), observes the birthday of the poet Taras Shevchenko (March), and organizes the celebration of Ukrainian Independence Day (August). In keeping with its Charter, the Club has given moral and financial support to the Ukrainian Studies Endowment at the University of Washington.
