The most important goal for our Fundraiser is to assure the much needed funds to maintain the House, continue our cultural programming, and undertake further renovations. We need to completely resurface the roof to avoid further deterioration, and repair the floor of the Main Hall.
You might be surprised that only the Hungarian House’s annual overhead costs are about 40-50 thousand dollars, which we have to collect through entrance and rental fees and donations. Even the smallest contribution will make a difference.
