The Foundation

In 1965 a tax exempt “Pan-Icarian Foundation” was established to administer the philanthropic endeavors of the Pan-Icarian Brotherhood.

Since its inception the Foundation has distributed hundreds of thousands of dollars for medical aid, scholarships, disaster relief, and other charitable causes in North America and Greece.

Ikarian Cultural Enrichment Grant

The Pan-Icarian Brotherhood is excited to announce the launch of a new process for requesting funding for projects from the Brotherhood and the Pan-Icarian Foundation. Beginning today, anyone interested in requesting funding from the Brotherhood and/or Foundation is urged to complete and submit a grant application.

Instructions for completing and submitting the grant application form can be found on the form itself. Grant applications will now be reviewed throughout the year.

We hope that this new process will improve communications and increase transparency around the funding request process, create more uniformity in our processes, and allow us to address requests for assistance more quickly.
