The Estonian American National Council, Inc., (EANC), is the nationally-elected central organization of Estonian Americans.
EANC helps support and maintain our Estonian heritage and language, Estonian American cultural activities and organizations in the U.S., and works to create awareness of, and support for, Estonia among all Americans. EANC also works in Washington with other like-minded organizations, such as the Joint Baltic American National Committee (JBANC) and the Central and East European Coalition (CEEC) to inform the U.S. Congress and Administration of issues of concern.
EANC is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization sustained by voluntary, tax-deductible contributions from the Estonian American community. These contributions help support Estonian American institutions, activities and special projects such as:
Singing Revolution documentary and upcoming films, To Breathe As One, about the history of Estonian song festivals, and In the Crosswinds, about Soviet-era deportations in Estonia
Vaba Eesti Sõna / The Free Estonian Word newspaper published in New York
The Estonian Archives in the U.S.
Long Island Estonian Children's Summer Camp
Estonian American girl guides and boy scouts
Estonian American festivals and get-togethers, such as ESTO (the world-wide Estonian festival), and KLENK (Mid-West Estonian Days).
