When Grand Circle Foundation Chair and Vice Chair, Alan and Harriet Lewis, visited Croatia's Antun Masle Elementary School in the spring of 2005, they were enchanted by performances by the school choir and dances by the folkloric group. Since then, Foundation donations have been used to purchase traditional costumes for the students' folklore performances; build and stock a library; and fund various classroom repairs and educational equipment.
