About Us

St. David's Society of The State of New YorkOur Story

The St. David’s Society of The State of New York was founded in 1801. Our aim to develop and support the Welsh culture and communities in the US.

We cultivate knowledge and appreciation of Welsh history and the Welsh language and literature, supporting a Welsh language study program and summer schools. We also provide aid to Welsh persons and their descendants who, for whatever reason, find themselves in distress.

Our Dinner and Scholarship Fundraiser

We annually award the St David’s Society Scholarship to students that attend Welsh colleges and to students of Welsh descent.

Each year the St. David’s Society of New York presents a bronze medal “to persons of Welsh blood or descent for distinguished services in the preservation and advancement of Welsh genius
in every field of endeavor.”
