About us

Step into the world of the
American Society of Panama

Embarking on a noble journey since its inception in 1931, our non-profit organization invites all persons of good character regardless of citizenship or national origin to channel collective energy towards supporting local charities and nurturing education - igniting a wave of change that will resonate for generations to come.

The American Society of Panama was founded in 1931 by citizens of the United States who were brought together by their business affiliations.

They felt the need for a formal organization to promote friendship among themselves and Panamanians. Some of the prominent founding members include Minister Roy T. Davis, Theodore McGinnis, George Novey, Sr., Robert J. Boyd, Sr., Charles F. MacMurray, Joel McGinnis, Carl Brunner, Sr. and Dr. William James. Since then, the American Society of Panama has evolved into a non-profit organization that embodies both charitable and social initiatives.

Our welcoming community is open to all persons who support the mission of The American Society of Panama regardless of citizenship or national origin. Through membership dues, alongside an array of engaging activities and events, we raise funds to support our impactful charity and scholarship programs.
