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.


Each month UCIAF delivers a “Member Donated” complete meal to the Veteran’s Patriot House in Kingston.
