We all have important values and ideas, things we care about and want to share. Sometimes we feel our ideas can even change the world. 
The Sons of Sicily, Aiuto Foundation was established to share our heritage and values with all people and continue to provide a base for our youth to use as a stepping stone for the future.

"Aiuto" means "help" in Italian.  Hence the name for our foundation.  We continually strive to help our community, charities, as well as provide youth scholarships and continue to strive for a goal of an Italian Cultural Center in one of the state of California's largest cities. 
San Jose, California has always been the original home to many Italian immigrants since the early 1900's.  Italian immigrants came to the valley and worked primarily in the orchards and canneries.  When you talk to many of our older generation, they tell wonderful stories of the past.  With so much history in San Jose, one of our shared goals with other local Italian organizations, is to create a center where we can display our common history in San Jose.

The Aiuto Foundation and it's founding membership, the Sons of Sicily of San Jose, California, has always had social and community goals since the club's inception in 1974.  The current Membership of the Sons of Sicily and its Women's Auxiliary Club continue to reach new levels of community and charitable involvement as a result of the Aiuto Foundation.
