Our History

The German American National Congress, also known as D.A.N.K. (Deutsch Amerikanischer National Kongress), is the largest organization of Americans of German descent.  It has some 30 chapters and over 100 associated member societies from coast to coast.

In 1987 D.A.N.K. was instrumental in the adoption of the Congressional resolution declaring October 6th "German American Day", which has been observed since then on a national level.

D.A.N.K. Mission Statement - D.A.N.K., a society of German Americans Today, was founded in 1959, and is active from coast to coast, with the purpose and goal to represent all German Americans in the United States.

D.A.N.K., a nonprofit organization, supports German cultural landmarks and events and sponsors German-American student exchanges and the study of the German language and culture.  It promotes harmony and goodwill among German-American clubs and societies across the United States.

D.A.N.K.'s cultural almanac, with its many programs and suggestions for local events, and its German American D.A.N.K. Journal are the visual and communications links between its members and friends, chapters, associate chapters, and its corporate headquarters in Chicago.

D.A.N.K. also acts as an information center and exchange on a variety of subjects concerning the German-American community at large. 

We welcome your inquiries, contributions, and donations for a United German America.
