We Strive To Make A Difference In Our Communities
The Palumbo Family Foundation strives to make a difference in two sectors of our communities in the Chicagoland area. One is providing scholarships to well deserving students of lower income families. Without scholarships, many of these students would not realize their dream of furthering their education. The other is providing medical grants to organizations that serve the needs of local medically challenged children.
The Palumbo Family Foundation is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit charitable organization. The administration of the foundation is all volunteers; a 100% of the net proceeds of donations and fundraising events give hope and inspiration to young adults looking for financial help to continue their education after high school; as well as children with medical needs.
Scholarships are open to all high school seniors, students with GED diplomas, undergraduate (2 yr or 4 yr) college students, and students at vocational or trade schools who meet the program requirements.
The Palumbo Family Foundation supports local groups who provide services and well being to children and young adults with physical and/or mental challenges.
With minimal expenses, 100% of the net proceeds from fundraising or donations are directly used for the scholarship program and/or medical charities support children of our local area.
Sebastian (Sam) and Mary Palumbo, along with their children, Jessica, Kaitlyn, Samantha, Elizabeth, and Gabriella, founded the Palumbo Family Foundation with the desire to offer boys and girls the opportunity to thrive through education and wellness grants.
The pursuit of overall well being serves to allow them to further their education and careers.
