About the EAO

The Egyptian American Organization (EAO) was founded in 1984 with the following goals:

The EAO plans several annual functions, which include but are not limited to events such as the “Outstanding Achievement Award” ceremony, educational lectures by prominent speakers, and other social and recreational events which attract adults, youth and children.

The EAO is a nonprofit tax-exempt California corporation which relies on the volunteer work of its members, most of whom are professionals giving their time, effort and resources to accomplish the successful program that the organization offers.

The EAO’s bylaws allow various forms of membership for Egyptian Americans and others who are interested in the Egyptian culture and the EAO’s activities.

Thank you to Mrs. Amani Kamel the 2023 EAO Chair for her outstanding leadership and services to our community.
