Italian Earthquake Fund

$54,875 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 190 people in 32 months
­­­­The Associazione Culturale Italiana di New York jointly with  the Italian daily newspaper AMERICA OGGI are working together to raise funds for the earthquake victims. In the past we have been  instrumental in the re-construction of 2 elementary schools which were devastated by the last 2 major earthquakes which hit Italy in the last 10 years. We also raised money for the Katrina, World Trade Center  and Sri Lanka disasters amongst others. In all our efforts we always made sure to partner up with a local organizations to make sure that all monies raised went for a specific project to help the people in need. In the last 2 earthquakes in Aquila and Abruzzo we helped build 2 elementary schools in record time. We partnered up with the "FONDAZIONE SPECCHIO DEI TEMPI" which is the Agnelli family foundation (which owns Fiat Chrysler) and in cooperation with them we built 2 elementary schools. One in PoggioPicenze, Aquila and the other in Bonefro, Abbruzzo.  We  have once  again partnered up with the Agnelli Foundation and  as before   have identified the elementary school in Arquata del Tronto (one of three towns destroyed) where we will pool our resources to make the school project another success.Help us help our brothers and sisters in need.

L’Associazione Culturale Italiana di New York, in collaborazione con America Oggi, promuove una raccolta fondi per le vittime del terremoto che ha colpito il Centro Italia martedì notte radendo al suolo i centri storici di Amatrice, Accumoli, Arquata del Tronto. Il sisma, con epicentro in prossimità di Norcia, Castelsantangelo sul Nera e Arquata del Tronto, ha fatto centinaia di vittime.
In passato, l’Associazione ha avuto un ruolo importante nella ricostruzione, a tempo di record, di due scuole elementari devastate dagli ultimi terremoti che hanno colpito l’Italia negli scorsi dieci anni, nella raccolta fondi per l’uragano Katrina e le vittime dell’attacco al World Trade Center e infine per i disatri che si sono abbattuti sullo Sri Lanka. In tutti i casi i responsabili dell’Associazione hanno creato un partenariato con le organizzazioni locali per assicurarsi che i fondi raccolti venissero utilizzati per i progetti che aiutassero le persone bisognose. In cooperazione con la “Fondazione Specchio dei Tempi” della famiglia Agnelli poi, l’Associazione ha costruito le scuole elementari di Poggio Picenze (L’Aquila) e Bonefro (Abruzzo).
La fondazione Specchio dei Tempi ha identificato nella scuola materna di Arquato del Tronto come proggetto sul quale la nostra raccolta sara' focalizzata.
