Projects

Since its inception, the Pan Arcadian Federation of America has given back to the Arcadian community, both in the United States and in Greece. We take pride in in our people and our heritage and we care for both through numerous charitable activities. If you are interested in contributing your time, resources or talents to any of these important initiatives, please CONTACT US today.

PAN ARCADIAN HOSPITAL

HospitalIn 1941, the Pan Arcadian Charity Fund was established to help fund the building of a hospital in Tripolis to aid the victims of World War II. In 1945, several prominent Arcadians received approval from President Harry S. Truman to send a shipload of supplies and equipment to Tripolis, Arcadia for the new hospital. With the addition of generous contributions from the Philodendron of Tripolis organization and the United States Government, construction of the hospital began in 1947 and it officially opened its doors in 1950. Since then, the Pan Arcadian Hospital has provided important medical care for thousands of Arcadians throughout the region.

Arcadia UniversityIn 2001, Beaver College in Glendale, Pennsylvania changed its name to Arcadia University, after the picturesque ancient Arcadian land known for its peacefulness, simplicity and strong academic and intellectual contributions throughout history. Having heard this and making the connection to the University through a local broadcasting station, the Pan Arcadian Federation of America was graciously invited to Pennsylvania for the name changing ceremony. After learning about the University’s outstanding faculty and programs, the Pan Arcadian Federation of America decided to establish the Arcadia University Committee. This Committee is dedicated to aiding Arcadia University in the growth of its undergraduate and doctorate exchange programs (which are now ranked second in the nation). The formation of this committee reflects one of the most important goals of the Federation, that of continuing the tradition of academic excellence that existed in ancient Arcadia.
