UNICO which means unique or one of a kind in Italian is the largest Italian American Service organization in the United States. The Acronym stands for Unity, Neighborliness, Integrity, Charity, Opportunity. We’re glad you found us! The Memphis Chapter is part of UNICO National which was founded in 1922 and has been a member chapter since 1977. We raise money for local charities that meet our mission objectives of Heritage and Culture, Education, Cooley’s Anemia research, Cancer research, Mental Health, and Anti-Bias. Our Foundation is a 501c3 which governs how we can raise and distribute funds while allowing for the maximum tax benefit for our donors. All the information you want to know about our chapter activities and Foundation initiatives can be found under the categories to the left. This page contains upcoming events and the most current fund raising projects listed for your convenience and we invite you to check out the entire site. We especially would like for you to visit the Membership page or view the latest communication from our Chapter President.
