Connecting People Who Care with Causes that Matter

Justin T. Dimino Memorial Scholarship Fund established

The Justin T. Dimino Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established as a component charitable fund of the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan.  This fund was created by Justin’s family to honor and memorialize Justin who passed away suddenly on January 9, 2011 at the age of 16.  “Justin will forever hold a special place in all our hearts,” said Justin’s mother, Stephanie Stack.

Justin Dimino was in his junior year at Monroe-Woodbury High School at the time of his passing.  According to Justin’s family, he was a boy who lit up the room with his smile and personality.  Justin was the starting defensive back for the Championship Crusader Football Team at Monroe-Woodbury High School.  Football was the love of his life, as was his family and friends.

Through the Justin T. Dimino Scholarship Fund, a scholarship will be awarded annually, beginning in  June 2012, the year Justin would have graduated from Monroe-Woodbury High School.  The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating member of the varsity football team at Monroe-Woodbury High School who has achieved a B average or better.

The Justin T. Dimino Scholarship Fund is facilitated through the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, a 501(c)(3) public charity that was created to help individuals, organizations, and businesses establish charitable endowment funds to benefit their community.  To make a gift to this Fund, please make check payable to CFOS-Justin T. Dimino Scholarship Fund, and mail to the Community Foundation at 30 Scott’s Corners Drive, Suite 202, Montgomery, NY 12549. Secure on-line donations may be made to the Justin T. Dimino Scholarship Fund at cfoc-ny.org.  For more information, please contact the Community Foundation at (845) 769-9393.

Note From Elisa Cavaliere:
During difficult times I found a home on my yoga mat. The practice transcended for me while dealing with my fathers illness and later his death. I found yoga Mentally caused me to slow down, grow patience, cherish every moment and understand the deeper meaning within every moment and every pose. Life moves fast and is filled with a million things to do but its the little detailed moments that can truly shape how we deal with it all. One of my fathers last “Nugget of wisdom” was about a book on living more in the present moment, this paralleled my yoga practice and seemed like the perfect message to share in his honor. ?

Starting the Conversation with Donors on Charitable Giving: A Charitable Tool Box @ Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine
Jun 9 @ 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm

This 2-credit charitable giving seminar will teach you how best to present complex structures to donors in light of their philanthropic goals, their assets, their family needs, and their tax concerns. Numerous technical rules apply to virtually every gift strategy, and failure to comply precisely can often lead to loss of the tax deduction for the gift or of tax-exemption for the structure created, because of noncompliance. An important part of charitable gift planning is meeting the complex regulatory requirements for valuation, including obtaining “qualified appraisals,” and acknowledgements of charitable contributions.

Held at the Jay Sexter Auditorium.

Limited Seating. Reserve by May 27, 2016

Buffet Dinner.
