Cultural Group Benefits was founded in 2000 to support cultural associations and their members.

Our mission of preserving traditional cultures for generations to come by offering economic development and cultural awareness programs was identified by our founder Sam Ndely.  Sam personally understood the importance his own cultural community played for himself and his wife, raising their family in the United States after coming to this country to attend the University of Minnesota.
