The Italian Benvenuti Club has remained committed to the ideals of cultural awareness and civic service upon which it was founded. Each year the IBC Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) organization, provides scholarships for students of Italian heritage. In 2021, the foundation awarded three scholarships of $1750 each.
