DAVINCI MISSION STATEMENT

  • MISSION:
    We are a non-profit fraternal lodge chartered under Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America. We are dedicated to promoting our Italian heritage, culture, language and education. We provide social opportunities embracing Italian roots, rejuvenating traditions, and networking events with diverse multiple generations. We support charitable giving and community outreach. We welcome those of Italian heritage and those who love Italy and its culture as social members.
  • VISION:
    We plan to grow and become a large and innovative lodge. Member meetings and activities are held monthly and are inclusive of both Americans of Italian heritage and friends of Americans of Italian heritage. Activities are designed to educate and engage members and non-members on Italian history, language, food, fashion, sports, technology, and geography.
  • VALUES:  
    We support OSDIA’s philanthropic obligations and goals through local fundraising initiatives designed to foster growth in student scholarships, lodge offerings, and local charitable, non-profit partnerships. We honor our Italian ancestors for their courage, sacrifice, strong work ethic, family values, as well as keeping their traditional customs alive while assimilating to a new life in America.
