Dominican Heritage and Culture Society

Dominican Heritage and Culture Society, ( is a 501c3 established in the United States of America, whose mission is to cultivate and maintain the roots that nurture the culture, history, and traditions of the Dominican people both in the United States and wherever we may travel across the globe. Through our events, we strive to bring cultural enrichment, entertainment, and educational activities regarding the Dominican Diaspora in New York and to empower our youth and emerging Dominican artists by providing economic support through our scholarship program. The Society considers it paramount that we stay connected and bridge the generational gap with our Dominican youth born and raised in New York. This can be accomplished by providing them with an understanding of their rich culture, vibrant art, incredible literature, and country’s history.
