Support the American Italian Cultural Center!


The American Italian Cultural Center is a 503c non-profit that intends to be the leading institution preserving and celebrating the American Italian history of Louisiana. The impact will be felt through increased awareness of how the American Italian community has shaped local, regional, and national history and culture. Our values include education, inspiration, high quality collaboration, and financial integrity. We provide programming opportunities that allow the community to come together to learn about the people, places, and events of our rich history and continuing significance.

We would like to thank the following foundations, organizations, businesses and individuals for their generous support.
