DONAU CHARITABLE FOUNDATION The Sick Benefit Society has established a new charitable fund at the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain with a donation of Five Thousand ($5,000.00) Dollars. This Fund is dedicated to the promotion of the German Austrian language and German and Austrian history and culture and any German-American activities relating thereto. As an established Charitable Fund the Club can continue to make donations to it in order to continue to promote these cultural activities. Also any interested members can make charitable donations to this new fund. All club members are invited to participate in the promotion of our culture in Connecticut. Proceeds from many years of Heimat Albends were used to fund this donation. This charitable fund is our second at the Community Foundation. The first fund established there is our Scholarship Fund. CFGNB is an excellent host for our two charitable funds. Its mission is to inspire philanthropy, responsibility manage permanent charitable assets, and partner to address key community issues through strategic leadership. Prost, Donau. Dennis
CULTURAL FUND The bylaws of the Sick Benefit Society and the Singing Society proclaim our
support for the German language and German and Austrian culture. In this letter we celebrate the
establishment of our Cultural Fund at the Community Foundation. In order to further support these
goals the Sick Benefit Society has made a donation of $900.00 to our newly established cultural
fund. In addition a donation of $300.00 was made to the German American Heritage Foundation in
Washington, D.C. in support of its German-American Heritage Museum. As a reminder anybody
can contribute to our new fund at the Community Foundation.
VOLUNTEERS are always needed for our dinners and breakfasts, especially at cleanup time. Please spare a couple hours for the good of the club. Call or text me, even at the last minute! Mona, 860 508-8236. Thank you.
