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 passionate Italian-Americans, including distinguished leaders, whose reach extends to the highest levels of business, community and philanthropy.
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.
We cordially invite those with a passion and love for Italy and our heritage to become a part of our growing organization. Our member benefits provide something for everyone, including networking opportunities, community engagement, cultural events, and educational talks. We strive to incorporate and preserve our Italian heritage and cultural traditions.
