Also through meetings, lecturers, classes, courses, scholarships and other means for its members directly or though its affiliates.
Its charitable endeavors consist of raising funds that will assist the programs of recognized charitable, health or educational institutions, and in general, to inveigh upon all members of the National Council of Columbia Associations in Civil Service and other members of the Italian ethnic group to foster and to broaden their charitable and humanitarian activities for the betterment of the community.
