The Polish Cultural Foundation, Inc. (“PCF“) is a nonprofit public charity engaged in charitable, civic, social, cultural and educational activities. It is organized as a nonprofit corporation under Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 180 (Massachusetts Attorney General’s Account Number – 037536), and it is exempt from federal taxation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (Federal I.D. No. 04-3405334). The PCF relies primarily on volunteers to carry out its programs and, under its By-Laws, its directors and officers receive no compensation (except for the reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses) for service in such capacity.
The primary objectives and purposes of the PCF are:
- (a) to engage in charitable and humanitarian activities generally,
- (b) to promote Polish culture, language, traditions, and history,
- (c) to support the interests of the Polish American community,
- (d) to establish a Polish cultural center, and
- (e) to conduct such other activities and programs in connection with or in furtherance of the foregoing purposes as may be carried out by a nonprofit, Section 501(c)(3) corporation.
Since its establishment in January 1998, the PCF has carried out these purposes through a variety of programs and events.
Participation in all of these activities are open to the public generally.
