The Society is organized for charitable, educational and scientific purposes, to further the perpetuation of German ethnic culture, heritage, arts and language in the community, including for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations which qualify as exempt organizations under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 (or the corresponding provision of any future United States Internal Revenue Law).
In November 2011, the Society purchased a 17,000 square foot building at 5626 N. E. Alameda (57th & Sandy Blvd.), formally known as a Masonic Lodge. This historic building has undergone carefully planned and extensive renovations, and will soon open as the proud new home of the German American Society, providing a variety of amenities for its members and affiliated organizations for many years to come.
