Sokol West Restoration – The damage to Sokol West and the households of its members due to the recent explosion of a fertilizer plant in West, Texas is significant. As Sokols, we are built to be strong and resilient to adversity. We are also built to be generous and giving. At this time, we ask for both in response to this tragedy. Please consider donating to this fund to support the restoration efforts from this event.
Future Sokol Leaders Fund (FSLF) – Established in 1960, this fund provides financial assistance for the training and education of youth members to become able administrators, advocates and instructors of American Sokol. The FSLF has contributed to the success of the American Sokol National Instructor School, National Sokol Camp and has funded many Merit Awards, which provided financial assistance toward College Educations.
Foundation Fund – This fund provides new programs and activities to the Community and our Membership, in order to preserve and expand the Sokol traditions of Education, Fun, Friendship and Community.
Library & Archives Fund – The 150 year history of Sokol is a treasure that few organizations can truly understand. This fund was established to financially support the cataloging, preservation and display of archival documents, photos, art, books, collections, merchandise, technical material and articles that are inherently valuable and significant to Sokol, its founders, members, history, culture, philosophy and creed. Today the American Sokol Library and Archival Museum is located in the National Office. If you would like to plan a visit, please contact the National Office for an appointment.
Preservation Project – This program is being developed to digitally recording all of American Sokol’s library and archive items into a nationally recognized system that will be available to the National Archives in both Washington D.C. and the Czech Republic, as well as the world wide web!
Wings Fund, Annual Appeal – At the Core of the American Sokol Foundation’s funding priorities is American Sokol’s most treasured asset: our Members and our Units. Your Unrestricted Gift, as part of the Annual Giving Program, enables the Governing Board flexibility to respond to emerging needs of the communities we serve. By Supporting the Wings Fund, you make possible the General Manager Program, American Sokol’s educational, leadership and member-development programs and Community Outreach Programs. These funds can be used in the General Fund.
