The Society of Friends of Belgium in America

The Society of Friends of Belgium was established in the fall of 2006 to identify, support and stimulate Belgo-American cultural initiatives in the United States. Exposing the richness of Belgian culture to the American public promotes the image of Belgium in the U.S. and enhances the mutual understanding between the two countries.

The Society of Friends of Belgium is a private not-for-profit organization based in New York, comprised entirely of volunteers. It receives the active support of His Excellency, the Ambassador of Belgium in Washington and the Consul General of Belgium in New York. The Society is chaired by Mr. François M. de Visscher and guided by a Board of Advisors, composed of Americans and Belgians based in the U.S. and in Belgium. All operating expenses of the organization are provided by The Board and the Executive Committee so that all money contributed goes towards supporting the initiatives of the organization.
