  1. Supporting the American Good Film Festival
  2. Supporting and developing youth leaders
  3. Fostering and strengthening local groups
  4. Developing and maintaining a strong regional support network for local groups
  5. Providing opportunities for young Esperantists to travel to Esperanto events both national and international
  6. Promoting face-to-face events where Esperantist can improve their language skills, make valuable contacts and participate in the meaningful ways with the Esperanto community and on projects that make the world a better place
  7. Making the annual congress a “not to miss” event for Esperantists young and old
  8. Joining with the Canadian Esperanto Association and the Mexican Esperanto Federation in projects for the benefit of Esperantists throughout North America

ESF has kindly agreed to administer the Esperanto in the USA fund and to cover the administrative expenses so 100% of the donations, including the matching amounts, will go to projects.  For information on how donations to the Esperanto in the USA fund are being used, contact Bill Harris, Director of the Central Office of E-USA, at E-USA Central Office.
