The Hellenic Society of Constantinople was founded in 1939 to preserve and perpetuate the vast contributions made by the Byzantines, and to promote charitable contributions to needy churches and nursing homes in Constantinople.
Our Southern California chapter was founded in 1966. Today, the society also supports scholarships to students of Greek descent based on merit, and donates to worthy philanthropic causes in the United States. The society sponsors the annual Commemoration of the Fall of Constantinople which is held in early January each year. Our organization supports the Patriarchate in Istanbul, Turkey and the religious freedoms of Orthodox Christians in Turkey and Asia Minor.
