Sponsor Generators for Children in Ukraine

With a goal of $50,000, we will be able to deliver 50 more generators to Children in Ukraine. With your support, we can help Ukrainian children survive the severe winter. Donate to the Kosciuszko Foundation Help Ukraine Fund and sponsor more power generators.

The 2023 TEIP Program application process is open!

The Kosciuszko Foundation's Teaching English in Poland Program is currently recruiting Camp Leaders, American teachers and American teaching assistants as volunteers for its 2023 Summer Camps. Teachers of all subject areas and levels are encouraged to apply. 

Your support is equally crucial as Albert Einstein's!

In May 1943, on the 400th Anniversary of the death of Nicholas Copernicus, the Kosciuszko Foundation held a series of lectures and commemorative programs, including one at Carnegie Hall, at which Albert Einstein was the principal speaker. After a further introduction to the KF' mission, Albert Einstein acknowledged the organization and its founder, Stephan Mizwa as a crucial benefactor and educator of young people.
