Our Mission at the Italian Heritage Foundation is, “We give honor to our heritage by giving back to the community, removing barriers to education that young people face through scholarships and other programs.” Over the past nine (9) years, we have donated over $570,000 and helped 300+ students accomplish their academic goals. We are proud of our heritage and grateful for the opportunities that this community has provided us. We endeavor to share with this community the goodness which it has shared with us.

Our Scholarships have benefited Aquinas, Bishop Kearney, McQuaid, Our Lady of Mercy, St. John Bosco, Hope Hall and School of the Holy Childhood. We also support many other causes including Camp Italiano at Nazareth College.
