Why Support the Foundation
There is an overwhelming need to help people in our community who have few, if any, options to find assistance in attaining the life’s basic needs. The Spano Foundation exists to ensure that individuals and families with these needs receive the financial help necessary to provide food, clothing, shelter or medical attention.
Often, organizations that serve the basic needs of members of the community are themselves in need of financial assistance. They may be underfunded through a lack of donations or grants. The Spano Foundation provides funding for a variety of areas that support so they can continue to fulfill assisting those in direct need.
Philanthropy means “the desire to promote the welfare of others.” We believe anyone with a heart for helping is already a philanthropist. Whether you give of your time, your talent or a generous donation, we believe the power of philanthropy to transform live transforms all of us.
