UNICO National – “Join Us!”

What We Do

UNICO National is a service organization of Italian Americans established in Waterbury, Connecticut in 1922 to “engage in charitable works, support higher education, and perform patriotic deeds”. According to its website, it is the “largest Italian American service organization in the USA”. At that time of its founding, the trial of anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti were in the news, and many stories fostered a belief that Italian Americans were loyal primarily to their homeland. UNICO was founded to show that Italian Americans were loyal to America first and held no allegiance to Italy except through cultural traditions.

Unico is the Italian word for “unique”, chosen to represent the one-of-a-kind nature of the organization. The word has since become a backronym which stands for Unity, Neighborliness, Integrity, Charity, Opportunity.

UNICO is the largest Italian American service organization in the nation. Our proud motto is “Service Above Self.” Our Greater Atlantic City Chapter has been serving the community for over 38 years. In that time, the chapter has given scholarships to countless high school seniors to assist them in pursuing their college education. Since the chapter’s inception of its scholarship program, the Greater Atlantic City Chapter has distributed over $700,000 in scholarships.

If you decide to support us, your tax deductible contribution would help provide scholarships to youths that have gone beyond mere scholastic and civic goals.

We sincerely hope that you will be able to support the Atlantic County UNICO Scholarship Foundation.
