NOIA: Who We Are
Ohio + Italy

Welcome to the Northern Ohio Italian American Foundation!

The Northern Ohio Italian American Foundation (NOIA) is the region’s premier organization dedicated to supporting the community in ways that celebrate Italian heritage. The organization is comprised of the area’s most distinguished leaders, whose reach extends to the highest levels of business, community and philanthropy.

Through a program of exclusive events, talks and networking, NOIA blends traditional Italian arts and culture with modern business acumen. This peer environment fosters personal and professional growth in ways that enable its members to provide mutual support, while giving generously back to their communities.

These are core Italian values that drive NOIA and its members to reach across multiple cultures, build bridges throughout the community and support for the greater good.

We're still celebrating Italian American Heritage month and taking note of all of Italy's favorite and happening events. This weekend is the Genova Beer Festival! With over a 100 different beers on tap, the event features 16 of the best breweries in Italy.

It's not all about wine all the time... our members like to enjoy Italian beer too!
