The Carpatho-Rusyn Society (C-RS) is an American nonprofit organization promoting Rusyn culture in the United States, as well as in the traditional homeland in east Central Europe.

Established in 1994 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, C-RS has over 1,250 members worldwide. Maryann Sivak is a founding member and the current president. The group's flagship publication is The New Rusyn Times.

In 2004, the C-RS purchased the historic former St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Cathedral at 915 Dickson Street in Munhall, Pennsylvania and converted it into the nation's first National Carpatho-Rusyn Cultural Center for East European Studies.
