“The more I learn of how the grants are used the more I love this organization and am thrilled to be a part of it.  I have made so many wonderful friends both in the US and France through our mutual interest in the work of French Heritage Society.”  – FHS Atlanta Chapter member

Fun fact about Atlanta:  When people ask us about FHS and our chapter we say we raise funds for grants by getting together for French food, French wine and food for the brain.

The Atlanta Chapter organizes a variety of cultural and social events each year for its members including the celebrated “Réveillon de Noël” in December. Proceeds from Chapter activities support the grant projects they have chosen from those approved for funding by FHS’ Board of Directors.  The current projects are listed below in bold.

Suzy Wasserman is the current Atlanta Chapter Chair. For further information or to learn more about Membership, please contact FHS Programs and Membership Officer Benjamin Wells.
