Why Donate?

The DANK Haus German American Cultural Center has been a pillar in the Lincoln Square community since the organization’s founding in 1959.  Our mission is to preserve and promote German culture, heritage, and language through a variety of events and initiatives in the Chicago community. Help preserve the legacy of cultural heritage programming in Chicago. 

 Community Programs

 In furtherance of this mission, we maintain a diverse center that features   a museum, art gallery, German library, and language school. The DANK Haus also   provides   educational and social programming emphasizing the history,   traditions, and contributions of Germans and German   Americans. We aim to   inspire people from all backgrounds to   come study and celebrate German   culture at our many events.
