Shape the future of the Cypriot American Community



What is the Cypriot American Community Survey?

The Cypriot American Community Survey is the Federation of Cypriot American Organizations' initiative to compile and record basic information on first, second, and third-generation Cypriot Americans and their family members (whether of Cypriot descent or not). The survey will serve as an informational tool and a means of compiling useful/pertinent data that will benefit future Cypriot Americans. 

Why your answers matter

This survey is an opportunity to help shape our community's future as it will provide a solid foundation to benefit future generations.  The sole contributing factor to building a strong community is unanimity towards a common goal. 

The goal of the survey is to build a community that will encourage the younger generation to be engaged in meaningful ways and ultimately raise influential leaders and create a sense of belonging and purpose. Being part of a resilient community will help your families and businesses in numerous ways and allow you to connect with people that share the same goals, interests, values, and ideals.

Your responses will provide FCAO with valuable information and a collective understanding of how to engage the community in programs and activities to preserve the Cypriot culture, Greek identity, and promote Cyprus's interests. FCAO will use the data to analyze trends, reach conclusions, and make informed decisions to ensure that programs, activities, and events implemented by the FCAO serve the community's needs.

Do your part and contribute to your community by participating in the Cypriot American Community Survey.
