Mission

The mission of the Italian American Museum of Los Angeles is to foster understanding of the nation’s diverse heritage and create a more just and equitable society through education, the arts, research, preservation, exhibitions, and programs examining the history and contributions of Italian Americans in the United States.

The IAMLA is a charity that depends on donations to accomplish its specific mission. As such, the IAMLA does not entertain requests for financial support to fund other organizations, charitable or otherwise, nor does it provide financial resources to artists, scholars, filmmakers, etc. The IAMLA does not fund exhibitions, theatrical or cinematic productions, nor is the museum rented out for such projects.
