The Federation of Italian American Organizations (FIAO) of Brooklyn receives grant from Investors Foundation in support of our annual Columbus Parade; increased health, wellness, and social programming at Il Centro; and overall programming to support our community.
FIAO recently received a $10,000 grant from Investors Foundation at FIAO Il Centro. The grant will help further FIAO’s mission of preserving and enriching community by fostering diversity through after school programs, multi-cultural initiatives throughout the community of southern Brooklyn, and reimagining community via it’s community center Il Centro.
“The source of our society/community strength is our people. Investors Foundation makes all of us better because of their collaborative spirit, their shared values, and their humanitarian culture. FIAO will use the grant to cultivate a stronger sense of belonging by drawing people from diverse backgrounds together and share healthier, productive, and purposeful experiences” Jack Spatola, President of FIAO and founder of Il Centro.
