THI leads the Greek Diaspora community internationally in raising awareness and capital for Greece. Its Gala not only raises funds that will be invested in entrepreneurial programs in Greece, but which also will support Greek NGOs that foster economic development opportunities and provide crisis relief for underserved communities in Greece, particularly children. Last year’s gala raised more than $2 million, making it the most successful fundraising event in the Greek Diaspora globally.
