The Nobility Association was formed in the United States in 1938, with aims both philanthropic and genealogical. The Association directs donations to charitable organizations which provide food, shelter, and medical treatment for disadvantaged people in Russia, Europe, South America, and the US. It also provides direct aid to Russian orphanages, the indigent elderly, Orthodox Seminaries, and other needy Russian-related organizations. Membership in the Association is limited to direct descendants of the families listed in the Registers of the Nobility of the Russian Imperial Senate, but the Association sponsors many events which welcome all, especially those with an interest in Russian Culture. The Russian Nobility Ball, run by its Chairman Princess Vladimir Galitzine, has been a highlight of the New York Social Season for over fifty years. Many of the most ancient families of the Russian Empire are represented every year at the ball.
