The history of the Kosciuszko Foundation Ball dates back to 1928, when a banquet was held in honor of Ignacy Paderewski, an outstanding pianist, composer, politician, statesman, and advocate of Poland's independence. The event nurtures Polish and Polish-American traditions. It begins with the Polish and American anthems singing, followed by the Presentation of Colors by the USMMA, Kings Point, NY. Then, guests enjoy a Polish American Folk Dance Company performance, after which the dancers invite everyone to join the Polonaise. The Ball is also an opportunity to establish new and refresh old acquaintances and dance to the rhythm of dance hits performed by the Gerard Carelli Orchestra.

The Ball is also the Foundation's most important fundraiser, aimed at raising funds for its educational programs in the next academic year. Thanks to the generosity of members and donors, last year the Foundation raised a record sum of nearly $2 million to realize its mission of supporting students of Polish descent, academic and scientific exchange between the USA and Poland, and promotion of Polish culture in the USA.

The Foundation is a membership organization, and its activities depend on the support of the Polish community and individual donors. The annual membership in the KF starts at $60 ($30 for students). Details regarding membership types, the benefits arising from them, and programs offered by the Foundation are available on the website

The Kosciuszko Foundation, with headquarters in New York and offices in Washington and Warsaw, is one of the largest and oldest Polish organizations in the United States, dating back to 1925. Over the past 99 years of the Foundation's activities, thousands of beneficiaries, including prominent figures in social life, have benefited from its programs, influencing the course of history with their achievements.
