The Center for Italian studies had been supported in part by a member line item in the New York State budget, but with this resource no longer available to us due to state budgetary problems, we rely on donations and grants from members of the local and national community to support the activities and efforts of the Center.
In its 25 years of existence, the Center has been acknowledged as a true leader in efforts to create a better understanding of Italian culture and Italian American ethnic traditions. It greatly appreciates the enthusiasm and support already exhibited on the part of many local constituencies and looks forward to having your encouraging assistance in maintaining this position.
We urge you to indicate your ongoing interest by:
- supporting the goals of the Center for Italian Studies through a tax-deductible donation;
- attending activities from our enriching Events Calendar;
- encouraging family members, friends, etc. to participate in our multitude of events with you.
