We are proud to announce that Patricia Kassis Lambrecht, a longtime supporter and member of our board of directors, has extended a challenge grant that she initiated in 2020 to support our important work.
Ms. Lambrecht will will match all memberships and donations to the Greek America Foundation with a 100% challenge grant through the end of 2022.
She announced the initial challenge grant in October 2020 in memory of her late husband, Thomas Gerodimos Lambrecht, in whose memory Patricia founded the Lambrecht Family Donor Fund, and in memory of her grandparents.
“My grandparents were refugees and immigrants who came to this country and brought with them a love for their heritage— something I believe the Greek America Foundation does for so many people in a meaningful and substantive way— and I’d like to sustain this,” Ms. Lambrecht said about her challenge.
As a result of Ms. Lambrecht’s generosity, every dollar we receive in donations for our charitable, academic and philanthropic efforts will be doubled— a huge opportunity for us to support and impact more people and change more lives.
Through the end of 2021, the total grant to the Greek America Foundation from the Lambrecht Family Donor fund was $137,000.
