Our Purpose

The Danube Swabian Foundation fosters, supports and encourages the preservation of the customs, traditions, literature, culture and history of the Danube-Swaben people (Germanic people of Southeastern Europe). The foundation was founded in 1982 and is active from coast to coast in providing moral and financial support. Its long-range goal is to help maintain thriving Danube Swabian organizations in the U.S.

Oma Abt Award

This award is sponsered by the Foundation with the Abt Family in memory of Maria Abt.


The Danube Swabian organizations have had many opportunities to travel for various cultural experiences. Some of these experiences are Welttreffens, cultural exchanges, and dance tours to name a few. The Foundation supports these experiences.
