The German American Society connects people with German and American heritage to enhance friendship and understanding, as well as cultural exchange.


The Society’s mission is to support the German-American community in the Portland Metro Area through a variety of educational, social and benevolent programs.


We offer cultural events such as Song Recitals, German Movie Nights and Discussion Forums with guest speakers as well as social events.


The annual Heritage Ball and the Summer Picnic are only a few of the highlights the Society organizes throughout the year.
The GSSOP Saturday Language Courses, operated by the Society since 1964 are dedicated to sharing German language and culture among learners of all ages in the greater Portland region.

The Annual Scholarship Program is dedicated to promoting and encouraging German language study among Oregon high school students.
