Our Purpose

Here we will explain the purpose of our organization. We may also include our mission statement on this page.

Organization Purpose

The purpose of this organization is to increase the popularity of our common interests. We hope to add new members so we will be able to grow and expand. We also want to have fun while when we are together and working on projects. By developing relationships and friendships, the organization will become even stronger.

The Filipino American National Historical Society New Jersey Chapter (the FANHS New Jersey Chapter) was established as the 27th Chapter of the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS) that was founded in 1982 in Seattle.  It’s a community-based organization whose mission is to preserve, document, and present Filipino American history and to support scholarly research and artistic works which reflect that rich past. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to further promote the interests of our organization and our members to the community. We strive to make a difference by educating the public and expanding our reach.
The national office operates year-round to lend expertise and support to its chapters across the United States and is recognized as the primary informational resource on Filipino Americans for community organizations; primary and secondary schools, colleges, and universities; local and national museums and historical associations; independent authors, playwrights, and filmmakers; and teachers, students, and scholars. We are the local agency of this wonderful national organization.
Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery.
Today is a gift,and that's why we call it the present.
