The NOIA Legacy Fund is a highly impactful way our organization fulfills its mission to preserve our Italian heritage and support initiatives associated with our Italian American ideals. The program’s five strategic funding initiatives are education, Italian parishes, Italian culture, Little Italy, and project/impact grants. The funds not only benefit our local Italian American community, our purposeful giving and positive outcomes fuel a deep sense of pride amongst our dedicated membership. Funding is derived from NOIA membership contributions in addition to individual philanthropic contributions.
