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.



Now that we are in the midst of a most unusual Holiday Season, I am flooded with so many thoughts and memories.  The first thing that comes to mind is a strong feeling of gratitude to so many that have helped UCIAF navigate this past year.  A special “Grazie” to Sponsors, Donation Givers, Board Members, Committee Chairs, “Tutto Italiano” Hosts, Numerous Volunteers, Members, and Friends.  Together UCIAF has maintained our “La Famiglia” and “Tradizioni” themes, but in new ways.

Through your generosity we have increased our Community Involvement donating over $5000 in 2020 back to our community plus $6000 in Educational Awards. We held our events and printed our 2021 Traditzioni Calendar. We even have done virtual and video programs for our membership.

Most of us remember Bob Hope, especially entertaining our troops for decades.  His words reflect our mission, “My idea of Christmas, whether old fashioned or modern is very simple loving others.  Come to think of it why do have to wait until Christmas to do that?”

Our sincerest wishes for a safe and blessed Christmas.  Together we look forward to 2021 filled with hope and love that is part of being Italian.  Join us on Wednesday, January 6th for a special virtual “Little Christmas-Christmas in Calabria.”


Buon Natale e Felice Anno Nuovo.
