Community Grants

Ulster County Italian American Foundation (UCIAF) is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to preserving, promoting and celebrating the rich culture Italian Americans share in Ulster County. We achieve our goals through outstanding cultural programs, language classes, educational lectures, monthly dinners and community support. We raise funds to provide Education Awards to students, contributions to not-for profit organizations and to those individuals in need of hardship assistance.
