Proceeds of the Taste of Polonia Festival benefit the nonprofit work of the Copernicus Foundation

The Copernicus Center is supported by the Copernicus Foundation. The Foundation was chartered as a nonprofit organization in July 1971 to serve the metropolitan Chicago area as a major civic, cultural, educational, recreational and entertainment resource.  The Center has been serving Chicago since 1979.

The Foundation is supported primarily through donations by Chicago’s Polish population and this annual fund raising event.  However, the festival also gives the board an opportunity to highlight Polish Culture through: Classical Music, Folk Dancing, Tourism Films and other cultural events.

The Foundation serves the community by supporting MANY other nonprofits and community organizations. In addition, much support is given to Performing Arts, Cultural events, and Community events. Find out more at the page “About Us.” To see a partial list [only PUBLIC events submitting info to our website] of Foundation underwritten  events, click HERE.
