**MISSION STATEMENT** *The Mission of the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) is to* ***celebrate and advance the inspiring achievements and uplifting values of the Italian culture and presence in America*** *and to* ***strengthen and empower ties between the United States and Italy***. The National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) is a nationwide organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., and is the largest and most loyal representative of the more than 20 million Italian American citizens living in the United States. NIAF was founded in 1975 and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with no political affiliations. NIAF’s two most important purposes are to encourage Italian Americans to continue keeping their culturally rich heritage and traditions alive and present, and to ensure that the entire community never forgets the great contribution that Italians have made to the history and progress of the United States. To this end, the Foundation actively collaborates with the United States Congress and the White House on all major issues affecting Italian Americans. To celebrate the great legacy that unites us and all the objectives achieved so far, NIAF organizes its Anniversary Gala every October in Washington, D.C., which is usually attended by the President of the United States; figureheads from the political, financial and cultural arenas; illustrious Italian Americans; and about 1,200 guests from the United States and Italy. On this occasion, the Foundation awards honors to eminent Italian and Italian American personalities who have distinguished themselves in their professional or civic role. In the past, NIAF has honored personalities such as Antonin Scalia, who was the first Italian American judge of the United States Supreme Court; Frank Sinatra; Joe Di Maggio; Lee Iacocca; Liza Minnelli; Luciano Pavarotti; and Sophia Loren. **OUR SIGNATURE PROGRAMS** Since its founding in 1975, NIAF has contributed tens of millions of dollars towards educational and cultural initiatives that improve the collective well-being of our Italian American community. We simply could not succeed in these charitable efforts without the generous donations to NIAF made by you and others.
