Ulster County Italian American Foundation

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!

Sign up for UCIAF Updates

We’ll keep you up to date on the upcoming meetings, festival, and other events and news.  We will send out an occasional email with this information – never too much – and we will NEVER share your information with anyone else.


As the weather turns warmer, our thoughts are turning to meeting in person (finally) and our popular October Festival. Our Summer Movies at Reginato’s will start on Thursday, May 27th with “Buona Siera Mrs. Campbell” and continue through September. This summer, we will dine and watch movies in the newly renovated patio area. The complete schedule and reservation information is on our home page of our website Reserve early to ensure your seat.

Deb and Anthony Tampone have scheduled a UCIAF Highway Cleaning for Saturday, April 24thfrom 11-1pm. You will be receiving more information on that soon through Member Planet.

We have scheduled our first LIVE Membership Meeting for June 29th at 6:00pm outdoors at the HITS Pavilion in Saugerties. It is our Annual Educational and Community Grants Awards Dinner. It will be catered by Diamond Mills. Reservation Information will be available soon through Member Planet and our website.

Most importantly, we are in the planning stages for our October 10th Italian Festival. Hopefully, we can return to the Kingston Strand, although we are flexible because of the uncertainty of NYS and County Gathering Regulations in October. No matter where we hold it, we need to raise funds through our NEW ANNUAL SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES.  

Please read our letter and check out the many ways Companies and

Individuals can support our overall UCIAF mission and be recognized throughout the year.

As we return to some normalcy, please check out our website frequently and participate in our events. Spread the word that UCIAF is alive, well, and growing throughout Ulster County.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Dear UCIAF Friend,

The Ulster County Italian American Foundation is reaching out to you for support.  Through generosity like yours, our mission of preserving, promoting, and celebrating the rich culture Italian Americans share in Ulster County will continue to grow.

Despite multiple challenges presented by the pandemic over the last year, UCIAF increased our ongoing support to not-for-profit organizations and to individuals in need through our Community Care Program.  In addition to awarding $6,000 in Educational Awards and $2,500 in Community Grants, UCIAF has donated another $5,000 in direct support of our neighbors at a time when they needed it most.

We held a unique Mini-Festival where we honored our Signore and Signora of the Year, provided entertainment, and showed a movie at Tech City.  We hosted two dinners and ran several virtual programs, including visits to Italy.  Our popular weekly radio show, “Tutto Italiano” continues to grow.  We published our 2021 UCIAF “Tradizioni” Calendar with new recipes and information to spread the word about our Foundation.

We recently initiated a New Annual Sponsorship Program with increased opportunities to support UCIAF.  The program offers year-round sponsorship and the opportunity to be included in all of our events, Social Media, and improved website with a single application.  Please take a look at our new attached Sponsorship Flyer

We have BIG Plans for this year to revitalize our Italian Festival on the Kingston Strand and our popular Outdoor Summer Movie series at Reginato’s Ristorante.  We have scheduled our June Educational and Community Awards Dinner for June 29th and our Family Bocce Day on August 8th.  When it’s safe and restrictions are lifted, we will resume our busy social calendar with more events for our 300+ members.

We are asking for your support in any way possible in 2021 as we look to improve and grow our Oct 10th Festival and continue our UCIAF mission.  As a not-for-profit 501 (c) (3), the Foundation depends on sponsorships, memberships, and donations to continue to grow.  Please visit our website to learn more about us and we hope you will use the application on the flyer to support us in our mission.


Gratefully yours,


Les Lombardi/Alessis
