Early Donors

The creation of the Pancretan Endowment Fund was met with great enthusiasm from chapters within the domain of the Pancretan Association and individual Cretans throughout the United States. Without the infusion of contributions to match that initial excitement over the founding of the PEF, the legacy of the current PEF probably would not have been as certain as it now is. In recognition of these early donors who believed in the mission of the PEF, this page is a tribute to those who took the initiative to support a fledgling endowment fund and give it vital seed money. The result: a fruitful educational venture which has witnessed the rise of academic programs in Crete as well as a warm liaison between the people of Crete and the United States.
