WMFAA was established in 1991 as a non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining, preserving, and cultivating Filipino culture and heritage, and helping others to share the same goals. WMFAA will continue to advocate the existence of Filipino-American community in West Michigan, and will serve to instill strong determination for unity and strive for self-sufficiency.
If you wish to look at, study, and memorize our By-Laws, please click on the above image to download the pdf file. We think it is very important for members to know what is in here. For an entire year after taking office, these were hidden from us.
Elected Officers for 2013-2015 were sworn in by Steve Vandermeer during WMFAA's Annual Christmas Party on December 1, 2012. November 16th of this year will be our next election.
Here we have a picture of the original, founding members of WMFAA at their first Christmas Party in 1986. Recognize anyone!
There have been a number of questions and confusion as of late, with the formation of a new entity named West Michigan Filipino-American Association Kasuyo Foundation Corp. which can be found on Facebook under WMFAA Kentwood. Our organization predates this organization and is in no way affiliated with it. Through the state of Michigan, each has it's own identification number. West Michigan Filipino-American Association has 723757 as their number. The Kasuyo Foundation has 71443J as their number. The use of our logo has not been permitted and is not being used properly. It is being used to further confuse our group.
