Moravian Glory Foundation is an organization in Atlanta, Georgia which supports its sister foundation in the Czech Republic by project management assistance services in Czech American communities, and also with fundraising activities. Foundation is governed by its board of directors: Monika Vintrlíková, Dagmar Benešová, Lenka Panáková Mohwish.
We are committed to support Moravian traditions and culture. Our long-term project is the rescue of the folk art painters and the skill of ornament painting - we organize domestic and abroad exhibitions and workshops, where we pass on the old time knowledge from one generation to another. We also teach textile techniques such as embroidery, bobbin winding, knitting, spinning, weaving and more. We knit from wicker, straw and cut from wood, we master the basic techniques of wirework and ceramics. We are also engaged in baking and folk confectionery.
We publish coloring books and workbooks of Moravian Slovakia Region ornaments, on which the folk painter Marie Švirgová from Lanžhot cooperates with us. We have organized several exhibitions and workshops in Washington DC, Atlanta, Cedar Rapids, Chicago and New York.
We provide American donors with an easy way to donate and support our activities in the Czech Republic, and also support activities that our Czech sister foundation organizes in Czech American communities in the USA.
