The New Greek Americans Crowdfunding Campaign

The Greek Heritage Society of S.CA is launching a crowdfund campaign on:  for our 3rd and final documentary called: THE NEW GREEK AMERICANS 1960-2017 which follows the expansion of southern California communities and their influence. Generations reveal their heartfelt and humorous stories   "Growing up Greek." But the question remains: Can Hellenism survive with each generation? We must do everything we can to keep that flame burning and never let it die out."


The Greek Heritage Society of Southern California (GHS) was established in 1985 to preserve the rich culture, heritage and traditions of Greek immigrants in Southern California. Through its FLOGA (FLOGA) Project (FLOGA in Greek means FLAME and signifies PASSING THE TORCH from generation to generation), the Greek Heritage Society documents the story of early Greek immigrants and highlights continuing generations. In doing so, it provides the community with an extensive database of Southern California's rich Greek American history.

GHS is a non-political, non-profit California corporation, in association with the Basil P. Caloyeras Modern Greek Studies Center at Loyola Marymount University (Los Angeles, California) for educational, literacy and educational purposes.
