The Michael Ryan Zodda Foundation established within Community Foundation
The Michael Ryan Zodda Foundation has been established as a component charitable fund of the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan. The fund was created by Michael’s family and friends to honor and memorialize Michael, who passed away suddenly July 2, 2010, at the age of 25. “The Foundation will enable us to continue Michael’s spirit of gaining knowledge and helping others.” said Michael’s parents, Robert and Judith Zodda.
Through The Michael Ryan Zodda Foundation, a research fellowship will be awarded annually to a Columbia University Medical Student. The Fellow will exhibit Michael’s talents, ambitions, and drive. This fellowship is intended to provide mentorship, financial support and an opportunity to advance the fellow’s knowledge in the areas of Cerebral Vascular Diseases, with a special interest in Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) and the Lupus Anticoagulant Blood Disorder. As each year passes, it is the hope of Michael’s family and friends that they will be able to add another “Michael Ryan Zodda Fellow” to a team of doctors seeking to advance the medical treatment and bioengineering for these specific diseases.
The Michael Ryan Zodda Foundation 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 create your own charitable endowment, to make a contribution to this scholarship fund, or to add to an existing named endowment fund, please contact the Community Foundation, Karen VanHouten Minogue, at (845) 769-9393, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
