Estonian American National Council
The Estonian American National Council (EANC), the central organization of Estonian Americans, unites and represents Estonian American individuals and groups throughout the United States.
The EANC was established on July 19, 1952, in New York City by post-World War II refugees seeking to restore independence in Estonia, while making a new life in the United States. With the rebirth of the Estonian independence in 1991, the work of EANC changed somewhat, to support the security and stability of the Estonian state, while continuing to preserve, protect, and promote Estonian heritage, culture and values in the United States. The Council consists of a maximum of 50 members who serve without pay, elected nationally every four years by Americans of Estonian descent. EANC is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization sustained by voluntary, tax-deductible contributions from the Estonian American community.
