The guiding principle of the Foundation is the preservation of Romanian identity in the United States and abroad.
Although primarily an institution dedicated to provide material help to refugees from Communist Romania, the Foundation was instrumental in restoring their morale and in encouranging them to keep alive the flame of freedom and democracy in their country of origin. To this end, the Foundation organized numerous meetings and observances over the years. Due to its integrity and following its moral strategy, the Foundation kept above partisan politics, its leadership never vacillating on principles, thus achieving and enjoying an impeccable prestige in the United States and abroad.
Realizing the urgency of salvaging the important sectors of
Romanian youth now in the West and in need of aid, Americans of Romanian
descent, newer American citizens, and exiles in the U.S. organized the
Iuliu Maniu Foundation especially for refugee assistance to the youth
who needed help in pursuing their studies in the free world; to provide
the extra bit of financial aid that, along with the income from the most
menial jobs, would enable the students to become doctors, professors,
engineers -- professions which could well serve their new country or
eventually, if circumstances changed, their native land.
