Our mission and vision

What is the Polanki mission?

It is simple and two-fold:

  • Preserve Polish traditions
  • Promote Polish heritage

Therefore, we bring Polish traditions to life throughout the Milwaukee area through:

  • Pierogi dinners
  • Harvest soup celebrations
  • Traditional holiday crafts
  • Cooking demonstrations
  • And many more educational opportunities

We also contribute to numerous community projects that promote Polish heritage:

  • Leonardo da Vinci and the Splendor of Poland exhibit at the Milwaukee Art Museum
  • Building of the Polish Center of Wisconsin
  • Restoration of the St. Josaphat Basilica
  • Restoration of the Kruza House at Old World Wisconsin
  • Polish cultural events at the Milwaukee Public Museum, Old World Wisconsin, and the Milwaukee County Historical Society
  • Acquisition and preservation of Roman Kwasniewski’s photograph collection by UWM’s Golda Meir library
  • Creation of the Spirit of Polonia fountain in front of the Milwaukee County Courthouse
  • Planning and fundraising for restoration of the Kosciuszko Monument in Kosciuszko Park on Milwaukee’s south side
