The Foundation  exists to promote education and cultural links between Wales and north America.  


A charity of over 30 years standing, we provide scholarships and bursaries; host events that create awareness of historical and on-going trans-Atlantic links;  continue to develop a network of people on both sides of 'the pond' to support our work; and make awards to commemmorate individuals who we feel have, by personal example, furthered Welsh-American relations.


The founders in Wales included the late Sir William Crawshay and in the United States John K (Jack) Evans who had begun his career sailing in ships exporting slate from Porthmadog and who ended up in a position of great influence in the US. oil industry.
