Celebrating France's Past, Facilitating a Franco-American Future

French Heritage Society

The French Heritage Society was established in 1982 in New York City with a clear vision: to inspire future generations with the treasures of French architectural and cultural heritage in both France and America. Today, the organization operates 10 chapters in cities across the United States and one in Paris, supporting the restoration and preservation of important French sites in both countries through fundraising and grants.

In addition to protecting these physical representations of French culture, the French Heritage Society transmits knowledge and skills across the Atlantic Ocean through educational programs for architects, art connoisseurs and collectors, artisans, and students. For more than 40 years, the Society's Student Exchange Program has facilitated summer internships in the arts and horticulture for students at major institutions in France and the United States. Further, the organization fosters Franco-American friendship and understanding at the professional level, offering international conferences, galas, and lectures.
