As a member of ISDA, you’ll get access to a wide range of opportunities, all of which celebrate, preserve and promote the Italian heritage.

Social and Cultural Events

You’ll become a part of our virtual lodge, an online community where you can connect with other Italian Americans across the country to further explore our heritage, share recipes, preserve traditions, discover events and more. You’ll also be informed of all ISDA sponsored activities happening nationwide as well as any festivals or parades in your city and beyond. And, our monthly periodical La Nostra Voce (filled with news and feature stories that take a comprehensive look at Italian culture, history, food, travel, and more) will be delivered straight to your doorstep.

Financial Security, Growth and Investment

Formed in 1960 by Italian Sons & Daughters of America, ISDA Financial Life is the country’s largest Italian American-owned annuity/IRA/life insurance provider with over $169 million in assets. Our uniquely tailored products offer highly competitive rates that maximize financial growth and provide peace of mind.


Every year, ISDA gifts over $150k in academic scholarships and film grants to our young adult members and children of members. We keep you informed of educational events taking place throughout the country as well as opportunities for studying the Italian culture and language.


Not only does ISDA offer domestic tours and trips abroad, but we also host a biennial national convention, bringing Italian Americans together for a week of festivities in some the nation’s top urban and resort destinations.

Charitable Service

ISDA strives to find service opportunities that not only help our fellow Italian Americans, but ethic communities that represent the new Americans of our country today. Through ISDA, you can join your local Italian American community to make a difference in the lives of others both near and far.
