The Caffè Lena History Project is an initiative created by History Project Director Jocelyn Arem on behalf of Caffè Lena, a nonprofit organization. As a special outreach project in collaboration with Caffè Lena and serving to augment the Caffè’s full time operating activity, this project does not receive any direct funding from Caffè Lena. It therefore depends entirely on grant and donor support from outside agencies and individuals. Please donate today! Your charitable donation is tax deductible. We seek funds to support:
