Originally formed as the Chinese Club of Buffalo in 1954 by local Chinese American community, we became a charitable corporation under Section 402 of the Not-for-Profit Corporation Law of the New York State, and in 1988 were recognized by IRS as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Our officers are all volunteers. Today, we have more than four hundred active members and various community groups (such as Buffalo Chinese Language School, Chinese Business Association, and Buffalo Chinese Health Professionals). Through organizing communal events and services, we preserve our culture, promote the fellowship among members and cultivate a social network of trust, and participate in local events as a member of the greater community and promote cultural exchanges. We welcome new and old friends to join us to build a more cohesive community, to enhance our image, and to grow our influence.

 

西纽约中华联谊会的前身是1954年由华裔社区发起成立的水牛城中华联谊会。之后根据纽约州《非盈利组织法》第402条注册为公益组织,并在1988年获得IRS认可为501(c)(3)非盈利组织。联谊会完全由志愿者管理。目前有四百多名会员和多个社团组织(包括中文学校,华人商会,华人医疗卫生职业者协会等)。通过组织社区活动和服务,我们传承中华文化,鼓励会员的互助和友谊,培养基于信任的人际网络,参与本地社区活动,促进文化交流。衷心欢迎新老朋友加入我们,集社区力量,展华人形象,扩社会影响。
