For good. For ever.®


The Samuel Matthew Lucente Memorial Endowment Fund, established by the Lucente family in memory of their son Samuel who died from lymphoma at the age of 27, benefits the Boy’s and Girl’s Club. The Lucente family has long supported the club, which aims to provide leadership and character development for boys and girls during critical periods of their growth. “We turned to The Community Foundation because we wanted to make sure that the endowment would be available in perpetuity. While the club has access to the income and interest, the principal endowment will always be preserved,” said Frank Lucente. “I often hear people say they don’t think they can make an impact. Well, I know that everybody can do something. We choose to support boys and girls who are disadvantaged. A lot of kids, if they just had someone to believe in them, to invest in them, it can make all the difference.”
