Herzlich Willkommen beim Germanic-American Institute!

Welcome to the Germanic-American Institute. We are a Minnesota non-profit whose mission is to foster appreciation and understanding of the culture, language, arts, and ongoing history of the German-speaking peoples through public educational and cultural programs.

The GAI is a co-founder and sponsor of the Twin Cities German Immersion School, a public charter located in St.Paul, serving children in kindergarten through 8th grade.

WE DID IT! Because of the generosity of donors like you, we were able to unlock the Board Match Challenge dollars ($20,000) graciously donated by the GAI Board of Directors and reach our Annual Fund goal of $70,000. The GAI is so much more than Bier und Bratwurst (though we love those too!). We rely heavily on individual donations to keep producing cultural and educational programs and classes that are accessible to everyone. From all of us at the GAI, Vielen Dank!
