Mission statement

Estonian American Fund for Economic Education, Inc. was founded in January 1990 to take advantage of the opening provided by perestroika to broaden contacts and address needs in Estonia the very existence of which had been denied during the 50 years of Soviet occupation.

At the time the U. S policy favoured democratization and economic reforms while promoting the territorial integrity of the Soviet Union. Accordingly, the Fund first concentrated on economics, then a "politically correct " approach. As the bylaws permit a broad range of activity, the Fund soon got involved in healthcare, general welfare, education, training economists and statisticians, developing nonprofit organizations, supporting youth-oriented voluntary services.

The Fund works on the basis of projects. Anyone is welcome to propose a project. Execution depends on a verified need and trustworthy partners in Estonia, and personal commitment of effort, expertise and resources on the part of volunteers in the United States.

Koostöö jätkub Tartu Ülikooli Sihtasutusega: Elmerice ja Andreas Traksi nimelise stipendiumi said üheksa Tartu Ülikooli üliõpilast. Harald Luningu mälestusstipendiumi said kaks arstiteaduse üliõpilast. Oleg ja Maie Golubjatnikovi nimelise  mälestusstipendiumi said kaks biomeditsiinitehnika tudengit.
 Arvo Pärdi projekti, mille haripunkt oli kontsert Kennedy Center’is, toetasid Henn ja Tiina Liivi ning Tiina Mähar McNally annetused. Ayco Sihtasutus suunas grandi, mis aitas korraldada MTÜ Järvi Festivali meisterklassi.

Toetajate ettepanekud on teretulnud!
Täname kaastöö ning toetuse eest!


Dear friends of Estonia!

To you, a heartfelt “ thank you“ from the NGOs, educational institutions and charities such as the Tartu University, Tallinn Technical University, Tartu Christian Adolescents’ Home,   Bethel Congregation’s Social Center, Kohila Children’s Center, Girl Guides and Boy Scouts Foundation, Rapla Invalids’ Club, Occupational Therapy,   Museum KGB Dungeons.
We seek to make a difference. For example, when the painstakingly developed joint curriculum on medical physics and biomedical engineering was threatened due to a budgetary shortfall in 2014, the Fund provided a bridge so that the Tartu University and the Tallinn Technical University could continue working together. When an occupational therapy startup sought support, we responded so that a needed service in Estonia could thrive.
Music in Estonia deservedly attracts audiences and support. Thus, Arvo Pärt is treasured worldwide, and Järvi is a brand in classical music. Pärt’s music was performed last year in Kennedy Center and in Carnegie Hall. Ayco Foundation asked us to send a grant to Järvi Festival master class, Tiina Mähar McNally and family Liiv  supported the Pärt project in 2014.

Are you grateful for a helping hand? Pay it forward!
