About Us

Polish American Council of Texas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established with the following Mission Statement:

  1. To further knowledge of Polish culture, traditions, history, language, arts, current affairs, and statewide events in Texas.
  2. To facilitate networking among Polish interest groups in Texas.

The founders of PACT felt it is important for a statewide organization to exist to unite the various Polish interest groups in our great state of Texas.

Some of our goals are to improve awareness of Polish events and activities between the various Polish organizations in Texas, to hold conferences for the leadership of its member organizations for the purpose of exchanging ideas, advancing the Polish culture and learning from one another.

Our objectives are to consider new opportunities, raise awareness of the Polish culture in Texas, and grow our membership.

Anyone interested in supporting Polish culture in Texas is encouraged to become a member of PACT and to help recruit other Polish organizations to join PACT.  Please help us spread the message!
