About the Italian American Relief (IAR)
The National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) created the Italian American Relief Fund as a vehicle for fundraising in response to the Emilia Romagna earthquake in 2012. IAR is a coordinated effort to provide immediate response when natural catastrophes and other disasters occur in Italy. Many institutions and organizations are coming together to rally humanitarian support and assist Italy in times of need. Our goal today, as it was then, is to provide a united front for Italian American organizations and individuals to rally behind a single cause. The more we raise together, the greater impact we can have on the devastated areas in Italy.
The National Italian American Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Where Does the Money Go?
As developments unfold, we will continue to update this website. We are in contact with the Embassy of Italy and the city of Venice to identify projects to support, 100% of all donations we receive will go towards the designated project. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law and tax receipts are issued by the National Italian American Foundation.
