Philanthropy

The Cellini Lodge Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Order Sons of Italy in America (OSIA), the oldest and largest organization for men and women of Italian heritage in the United States. The foundation was founded in 1959 as a private, grant-making institution with the purpose of preserving Italian American culture, encouraging educational excellence among Italian Americans and improving lives in other areas.

In the tradition of SIF, Cellini Lodge #2206 engages in many philanthropic works throughout the year, including:

  • Scholarships
  • Community festivals
  • Fundraising for charities

The SIF’s three national charities are the Alzheimer’s Association, Cooley’s Anemia Foundation, and Coaches vs. Cancer.
