Attribute to: John F. Calvelli, Secretary of the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) and Members of the Board of Directors
The National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) commends the Columbus Citizens Foundation for their commitment to help reinstate the Advanced Placement (AP) Language and Culture Program in Italian.
Following a $1.5 million pledge by the Italian government, NIAF pledged $500,000 for the reinstatement of AP Italian in April 2010. The Columbus Citizenship Foundationís pledge brings the total raised to $2.5 million, only $500,000 short of the $3 million goal for this important language program.
NIAF stands committed in its support to the study of Italian language and culture which is at the core of the Foundationís mission to preserve and expand our rich heritage.
