MonacoUSA today serves as a social and business network for Americans, Monegasques and other English-speaking members of the international community. The Association's historical objectives include fostering a strong bond between Monaco and the United States, assisting Americans visiting or living in the principality, and supporting Monaco's long term commitment to help the disadvantaged.


HISTORY

Created in 1973 at the express wish of H.S.H. Princess Grace, the MonacoUSA Association has for the past 38 years been the Principality’s main rendezvous for resident Americans and native Monegasque citizens - as well as friends of both nations from around the globe.

 

Princess Grace never missed an opportunity of fostering cultural educational and artistic exchanges between her native America and her adopted Principality and The MonacoUSA Association is the direct fruit of the Princess' desire to foster a sincere friendship between the two countries.

 

Princess Grace worked tirelessly for several favorite charities: the Monegasque Red Cross, AMADE, the Princess Grace Ballet School, the American Association of the French Riviera and for many international organizations assisting underprivileged children At the time of MonacoUSA's establishment in 1973, the Princess impressed on the first Committee Members that she hoped this Association would evoke the true American spirit of open friendship, good cheer, a willing hand to help others and, above all, informality. She intended that the meetings of the group be kept casual – and affordable to all “from the CEO of an international company to an 'au pair' working for a Monaco family” – as she herself once put it.

 

The Association has, over the years, attempted to follow our illustrious founder’s wishes. The Princess herself - as well as Prince Rainier and their children frequently participated in the Association’s events. Today her son, H. S. H. Prince Albert II, following in his mother’s footsteps, goes out of his way to support and encourage Monaco-USA by his periodic attendance at our sponsored events
