Our associated foundation - Canadian Rakoczi Foundation

The Rakoczi Association was founded in 1953 to preserve the Hungarian culture in Canada and to serve the Hungarian community. The founder of the Association was Miklos Korponay, who intended that this non-profit organization would cater to the cultural needs of the Hungarians of Canada, to provide a friendly balance and cooperation between the existing associations. The cooperation contract, which is still valid, has been signed worldwide but mostly in the United States of America and Canada by 168 different Hungarian associations, including the historical churches.
