Associations & Non-Profits
We are a Foundation with many services offered to our members and other interested supporters. We own and manage the Italian American Heritage Foundation Cultural Center that features a research library, a history of Italians in Santa Clara County Photo Exhibition, several other exhibitions involving Italian heritage, a social hall with a complete kitchen, and several offices. We have a monthly newspaper, which is given to members. Included in this informative publication is a calendar of events, foreign and local articles on anything Italian, and historical information on Italian Americans in Santa Clara County. Italian and American customs, folklore, various entertainment programs, and well-established traditions have become part of the community through such events as the annual Italian Family Festa, language classes, opera, musical programs, art shows, film festivals, and sport events. Through the many cultural activities we are able to promote Italian heritage in an extensive outreach program, bringing awareness to the community, as well as serving the needs of the Italian American people.
