The American Chinese Friendship Society of WNC (ACFS) is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, incorporated in the state of North Carolina. Our purpose is to further cultural appreciation and mutual understanding between the American and Chinese people on an individual level. The Society's members come from many backgrounds, but the Society itself is not affiliated with any religious denomination, political group, or social movement.
The Society hosts cultural and social events in the area in order to introduce local residents to the fascinating world of Chinese customs, music, holidays, language, and arts. We also endeavor to support travel and opportunities in the Chinese-speaking world as well as help Chinese residents in the region connect socially to Americans who are interested in learning more about Chinese culture.
The Society was founded in 2019 by Dr. Will Lehman and Dr. Ling Lebeau.
