Mission Statement

Our mission is to preserve and promote German culture, heritage, and language through activities including, but not limited to, maintaining a center consisting of a museum, art gallery, library, and language school, and organizing educational and social programming focusing on and emphasizing the history, traditions, and contributions of Germans and German Americans.

Description

DANK Haus is a 501(c)3 organization that depends on donor and volunteer support to allow us to meet and expand our mission and goals. As a German American cultural center, we strive to preserve and promote German and German American culture in the city of Chicago. We do this by providing low cost language classes for all levels and all ages. DANK Haus also shows classic and contemporary German films. We also provided cooking classes to spread the wonders of German kitchens. Our museum highlights important moments of German American life in our exhibit "Lost German Chicago." Our art gallery hosts up to four exhibits a year from both German American and community artists. DANK Haus also screens important German soccer matches. We also take part in the Maifest street festival. This festival is our largest fundraiser of the year.
