As the year draws to a close, we all reflect on our memories. Do you have a special memory of France? 🇫🇷 Did your life brighten when seeing a beautiful piece of French art 🖼️ or tasting a special French treat? 🥐 Were you excited by French innovation? 🚀
If so, we hope you will consider supporting the French American Cultural Foundation (F-ACF). We’ve taken our mission to new heights through incredible transatlantic partnerships and programming, and we’re positioned to accomplish even more in 2024.
Your donation, no matter the size, will make a meaningful difference in furthering our efforts to strengthen French-American relations. Together, we can continue to build bridges across continents and generations, preserving our shared legacy and fostering mutual understanding.
With our focus on aerospace, cuisine, diplomacy, medicine, and science, no other organization has the breadth and depth of the F-ACF.
Below are just a few of the highlights from this year’s programming:
Pop-Up Trip to France: F-ACF hosted 52 American guests for a magical experience in France including an extraordinary evening at the annual Gala to benefit the Royal Opera at Château de Versailles.
A New Era in Astronomy: The James Webb Space Telescope Celebrates Science Through Partnerships: F-ACF sponsored an event at the French Embassy in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the ongoing and successful transatlantic partnership that supports the James Webb Space Telescope. We also hosted a screening of the Netflix documentary, “Unknown: Cosmic Time Machine.”
Celebrating the Reopening of National Museum of Women in the Arts: The National Museum of Women in the Arts recently reopened its doors to the public after a two year renovation project. F-ACF is proud to sponsor the French Committee for Women to Watch, an exhibition presented every three years.
There is much ahead as we celebrate the 200th anniversary of Lafayette’s Farewell Tour of America and engage in the planning for America’s 250th.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a prosperous New Year ahead!
