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 www.uciaf.org to learn more about us and we hope you will use the application on the flyer to support us in our mission.
