Benvenuti a tutti. Welcome all.
“Italianita’, roughly translated as Italian-ness, refers to a way of seeing and feeling that comes from the shared history and experience of our people, no matter where they live or how many generations separate them form the motherland. It is the responsibility of Italian American leaders to sustain that way of seeing, of experiencing life and of respecting our unique heritage. The Foundation brings that set of values to Ulster County and its citizens with passion and intelligence, serving to extend the long arm of cultural diplomacy to upstate New York. We salute the Founders and Friends of this valuable enterprise.”

Help Support the UCIAF
There are several ways to support the Ulster County Italian American Foundation. Donations are always appreciated of course, but we would love to have you join UCIAF so that you may enjoy the full benefits of membership; and a membership makes a great gift for the Italian American in your life.
We're always in need of sponsors, vendors and volunteers for our events, especially the Italian American Festival each October. Please join us in celebrating our heritage!
