Founded in 1982
The Sons of Italy Heritage Club was founded in 1982 by a group of citizens of Italian heritage, whose grandparents were members of the Italia Moderna Society, a benevolent society of Italian (mostly Sicilian) immigrants that dates back to 1906.
We are a 501C3 organization of men and women, dedicated to promoting and preserving our Italian heritage and its culture, traditions, language, and the legacy of our ancestors. We are sons and daughters, grandmothers and grandfathers. We are corporate executives and we are homemakers.…teachers and attorneys….. bakers and stock market brokers …students and retirees…doctors and firefighters.…and everything in between. We are committed to our community and serving others. Since our formation almost 40 years ago, our contributors have given generously and put in countless work hours dedicated to the betterment of our community and the benefit of others in need.
You Are Benvenuto

You don’t even have to be Italian to join! Many of our most faithful members are not of Italian heritage, but proudly wear our name. Whether you are of Italian heritage or simply have a love for things Italian and want to make a difference in your community, you are welcome.
