The Maurice Rohrbach Fund (the “MRF”) for Swiss-American Cultural Exchange was founded in 1981 by the Board of the Pennsylvania Chapter of the New Helvetic Society (“NHS”) under the leadership of Dr. Alfred Zweidler in remembrance of Mr. Maurice Rohrbach, the late Consul General of Switzerland in Philadelphia. The goal of the MRF is to carry on the Consul General’s quest of fostering friendship and mutual understanding between Swiss and American people by promoting social and cultural interactions among Swiss and Americans. Specifically, the mission of the MRF is to organize and support public exhibitions and performances of art and culture from Switzerland in the Greater-Philadelphia area as well as exhibitions and performances of art and culture from the USA in Switzerland.
