UCOWPA: WHO WE ARE

We are a nonprofit charitable 501(c) (3) organization established in 2009. Our objectives are to bring together the different generations of Ukrainian immigrants, their descendants and any person who is interested in the promotion of Ukrainian and Eastern European culture in Western Pennsylvania, and to present cultural and educational programs at which all ages could participate. We act and function exclusively for charitable, educational and cultural goals and are dedicated to the celebration of Ukrainian and Eastern European heritage and culture. Please see our Mission Statement for more details.

 
Our success is due to the hard work of our Board of Directors and many volunteers. While providing a variety of programming and learning opportunities, our ultimate goal is to establish a Ukrainian American Cultural and Educational Center for Western Pennsylvania.
 
To make this dream real, we need the support of the entire community. Think of this as a contribution to yourself, your children, or grandchildren, or a tribute to your parents or grandparents. These are remarkable times and it is good to include YOU as part of the story - Founders, Visionaries,Benefactors and Patrons’ names will be engraved on the Donor Plaques of the UCOWPA. For more details, please see our Donate page.
