The Federation of Alliances Françaises USA
The Federation, founded in 1902, is a nonprofit professional service organization representing more than 100 chapters in the United States. It is run by a volunteer board composed of leaders from 12 Alliances of all sizes throughout the nation. Its mission is to support the member chapters in their efforts to promote the French language and francophone cultures. The Federation promotes communication on issues of common interest to the chapters through e-mail newsletters, quarterly magazines, annual conferences, an annual awards program and more. The Federation provides grants for educational and marketing programs and runs the One Book One Federation and One Film One Federation programs.
Any official Alliance Française chapter in the U.S. and Puerto Rico is eligible, upon payment of dues, to become a member of the Federation. The Federation’s national office is in Washington, D.C. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
