Past President's Message

Buon giorno! Another year has gone by and great things were happening with the Italian Heritage Foundation. 407 students have benefitted from our scholarships totaling $878,000, to date. We are proud of the accomplishments these students have made and that we were able to help them achieve their goals.

As you review this Yearbook and the Italian Heritage Foundation Board Members, you will recognize many names and organizations. We all worked hard to achieve the success of our businesses and we know that the students we have helped have done the same. This is our Second Yearbook where we celebrate all these great accomplishments and generosity the Italian business community has contributed to the spirit of helping others become successful.

My philosophy in life is this: “If you give a little more than you expect to get back, you get back a lot more than you gave.”

We deeply appreciate your continued participation and support, and look forward to enjoying our events with you in 2019!

Michael Tambe
Past President, Italian Heritage Foundation
