Every donation helps perpetuate Italian culture


Your gift to the NOIA Foundation allows you to support the aspects of Italian heritage and culture that you care about most and impact Italian Americans and our greater community. Giving is personal; you may gift to a specific pillar of our Foundation or to our general Legacy Fund. Whichever area you are most passionate about, your gift will make a difference.


Golf Outing

Since 2005, NOIA has hosted an annual charity golfing. Each year, the NOIA Golf Committee selects a meaningful cause to benefit from our event. All proceeds from the event go directly towards the selected charity.



NOIA Leadership Scholarships are awarded to eligible high school students who demonstrate a passion for giving back, helping others and taking an active role in ensuring our local Italian American community continues to prosper.


Italian Parishes

Our ancestors came here poor and brick by brick created these churches as early as 1892. The Italian-based Parishes in Cleveland we support are Holy Rosary, Holy Redeemer, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, and St. Rocco’s.


Little Italy

Our support for the Little Italy Redevelopment Corporation and four local parishes allows us to reinvest in the center of our Italian community here in the Cleveland area, and help ensure that Little Italy remains in a position to thrive.

Italian Culture

Our culture is rich and special from cuisine to traditions, from the language to the arts, and more. Through education and celebration, we can ensure generations can continue to experience a strong sense of value, purpose and pride.



We are deeply committed to our greater community and organizations and groups in need. These grants seek to advance Italian-influenced artistic and community ventures that match up with our NOIA mission.

"There's nothing more important than giving back... giving back to the community you live in, giving back to organizations that have a clear impact... with your dollars."
