About Us

The Italian Heritage

Established in 1996 by a group of Italians with a passion for our culture, the Italian Heritage Foundation is dedicated to foster, promote, expand, maintain and preserve the culture, language, society, and history of Italy.

Our goal is to create an endowment that will produce earnings to promote education, support the arts, and fund projects that will recognize the cultural contributions of Italians and enhance the image of our community.

Italians have a wonderful history in Kern County with a strong presence in our community. We have made many significant contributions and your tax-deductible gift will ensure the preservation of our Italian culture for years to come.
