About Polish Falcons
Polish Falcons of America (PFA), one of the nation’s leading Polish-American organizations, is an ethnic fraternal benefit society with over 21,000 Members nationwide. Since its inception, the Polish Falcons of America has provided for the physical, social, cultural and financial welfare of its Members. From its origins in the great immigrant movement of the last century, to the demands of today’s fast-paced world, the PFA has a rich history of promoting physical fitness, cultural programs and family-based activities.
Under its time-honored motto of “w Zdrowym Ciele, Zdrowy Duch” - “A Healthy Spirit in a Healthy Body,” the Polish Falcons offers a wide range of programs for its Members. These include charitable and social events, sports activities and educational programs, some of which promote our rich Polish heritage. The Falcons also support various youth camps, athletic tournaments and competitions. Based on the “Nest” or lodge system, the Falcons invites as Members any individual who is of good moral character, and who is supportive of the organization’s values and ethnic ideals.
The Polish Falcons offers insurance and annuity products that have proven to be both a safe and reliable way to protect Members and their families since 1928. Support of these products enables PFA to sustain its range of programs across the country.
Czolem! (pronounced "cho-wem"), the official Falcons’ salutation, is literally translated as “to the forehead” or “hail." Czolem is one of the oldest forms of Polish salutes and is used as a greeting, a farewell, and as an expression of best wishes.
