A French-American associative network

Twenty six associations are currently members of the Comité Tricolore (Tricolore Committee).

Open to French and French-American associations or organizations of the Washington D.C. region sharing a common interest in French culture, in the strengthening of the relationship between France and the United States and in helping our community.

The Comité Tricolore (Tricolore Committee) is an apolitical, philanthropic nonprofit association 501 (c) (3), run by volunteers. It was founded in 1990 and incorporated in 1998.

Our mission is three-fold:

  • Coordinating and promoting the activities of our members,
  • Organizing Bastille Day, Le Déjeuner sur l’Herbe and other events,
  • And helping our community with the proceeds from our events and donation campaigns. Since its creation, the Comité has distributed over $500,000 to French people in need, thanks to annual fund-raising events such as Bastille Day.
