Friends of Goethe

Support the Goethe-Institut Chicago

The Friends of Goethe Inc. (FOG) has supported the Goethe Institut’s cultural program in the Midwest / Chicago region since 2006. Our mission is to actively engage everyone who expresses an interest in the German culture by encouraging the intercultural dialogue and enabling cultural involvement.

Friends of Goethe – Chicago is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that sponsors several fund-raising events a year and an annual pledge drive to supplement the public dollars the Goethe-Institut receives. Through its support, FOG enhances the activities of the Goethe-Institut in the Midwest / Chicago and promotes its activities in the region.
