The Abruzzo and Molise Heritage Society (AMHS) invites anyone with a love for Italy and a passion for their Italian heritage to become a part of our vibrant organization. AMHS, through The Grant and Scholarship Fund of the Abruzzo and Molise Heritage Society of Washington, DC was founded in 2000 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Washington, D.C.
AMHS strives to preserve our Italian heritage and offers a variety of events and activities to enhance our community of family and friends. We have many benefits to membership, such as our wonderful newsletter, the bi-monthly AMHS Notiziario, discounted pricing to Society-sponsored events (such as the bi-monthly luncheon meetings, Carnevale, and travel), and associate membership in the National Italian American Foundation. AMHS also provides two scholarships a year to students to study Italian language and culture, and we work to support many other programs that benefit the Italian-American community.
Membership fees are the source of the AMHS’ revenue for its operating funds; donations and fundraising activities are the main source for the AMHS scholarship funds. Officers and Board Members serve without remuneration. The membership fee structure is as follows: Couple’s Membership, $55; Individual Membership, $30; Associate Membership, $20 (for each member residing outside a 50-mile radius of Washington, DC); and Student Membership, $20.
As a membership-based and membership-funded organization, AMHS relies on member involvement to continue to develop programs and activities that further our mission.
