Every immigrant who forged a path to the United States has left an imprint on America. Your family’s story, your history, make up the American mosaic.
Continue this legacy by etching your name in stone on a Legacy Brick proudly displayed at the entrance to the National Hellenic Museum. Honor your family, a loved one, special occasion, or simply declare your loyalty to the Hellenic heritage. Your 100% tax deductible donation helps us connect generations through Greek history, art, and culture, and makes it possible for us to share and preserve the Greek story in America for generations to come.



“We participated in the Legacy Brick program because we wanted
future generations to enjoy the Museum. We have always supported
the Museum and its mission
because it gives visitors
an appreciation of Greek culture.”  – Alice Kopan
