Your Gifts at Work


Dear Fellow Estonian American and Friend of Estonia!  

The Estonian American National Council works to achieve our common goals of ensuring strong U.S. support for Estonia, and of fostering Estonian culture, language, history and traditions in the United States.

Now more than ever before, EANC’s work on the political front is critical as Russia’s shadow looms large.
Our important advocacy work includes:

  • We meet regularly with Congressional staff and the State Department to discuss issues affecting Estonia and the Baltics, and with the Baltic embassies to exchange information on our work and upcoming events.
  • We work closely with the Joint Baltic American National Committee (JBANC) and the Central and East European Coalition (CEEC) to leverage our efforts.
  • We organize advocacy events to encourage grass-roots participation. Contact our Washington, DC Director Karin Shuey for information ([email protected]).
  • We provide information on issues important to the Estonian-American community, and organize and speak at events and conferences. 

EANC also supports the preservation of Estonian culture, language and traditions in the United States, including:

  • Vaba Eesti Sõna, the only Estonian-language newspaper in the U.S.
  • The Estonian Archives in the U.S.
  • Youth activities - Estonian Boy Scouts, Estonian Girl Guides, and Long Island Estonian Children’s summer camp
  • Victims of Communism Memorial annual commemorations
  • Documentary films like “The Singing Revolution” by Sky Films, and “Coming Home Soon – the Refugee Children of Geislingen” by Helga Merits
  • Cultural events such as New York Cultural Days, Mid-West Estonian Days (KLENK),  Estonian national Celebrations celebrations, choir, folk dance and theater group performances throughout the U.S.

EANC is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization sustained by voluntary, tax-deductible contributions from the Estonian-American community and others.
Our work is made possible through the generosity of our donors.  Help support a free Estonia and preserve your Estonian heritage for future generations…
