The Georgian Association is a small, non-governmental, nonpartisan organization of Georgian Americans and friends of Georgia. The organization works on behalf of our growing nationwide constituency. Founded in 1932, we are the oldest organization in the United States representing the Georgian American community.

We regularly advocate to Congress, the U.S. Administration, and the American public on issues of importance to Georgian Americans. As a nonpartisan organization, our goal is to support an independent, democratic, and prosperous Georgia. We realize that this requires continued support from each U.S. Administration. Thus, as an active member of the Central and East European Coalition (CEEC), the Georgian Association works with Congress and the U.S. Administration to ensure appropriate levels of military, economic and development assistance is provided to Georgia on an annual basis. In order to survive as a small independent nation, Georgia must have the capabilities to defend itself and to grow its economy and its still fragile democratic institutions. Our efforts strive to ensure this is the case. Currently, our attention is focused on the ongoing belligerency of Putin’s Russia, Georgia’s continued occupation and severe human rights violations by regular and irregular Russian troops, the creeping annexation of Georgian territories, and Russia’s antagonism toward CEEC members in the Baltics and Ukraine. Our voice ensures U.S. support for Georgia continues.

And thanks to a generous donation by an eminent family of Georgian Americans, we manage a fund which is used to support worthy educational initiatives focused on the Georgian language and Georgian students. Our annual support for the Academy of Georgian Heritage in Maryland has allowed a younger generation to learn Georgian and to appreciate Georgian culture through music and dance. Where appropriate, we support in a limited fashion other educational opportunities for young Georgians and friends of Georgia such as exchange programs between Georgia and the United States.
