Founded in 1999 by Louis R. Cappelli, who serves as Chairman of the Foundation Board of Directors, The Louis R. Cappelli Foundation is a funding source designed to assist at-risk youth to reach their full potential. The Louis R. Cappelli Foundation has awarded over $7.3 million in grants since its inception in 1999.
The Louis R. Cappelli Foundation’s mission is to make grants in support of philanthropic activities, with a focus on programs addressing the special needs of youth. Three specific targeted areas where the Foundation focuses its attention are education, health and fitness, and arts education. Qualifying organizations are those who hold IRS 501(c)(3) not-for-profit status. The organizations must serve at-risk youth. The term “at-risk” refers to youth who are at-risk of reaching their full potential in life.
All fully certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations serving the Westchester County and Sullivan County, New York, and Fairfield County, Connecticut are invited to submit an application for funding during our funding initiative, which meet the following Foundation criteria:
Education: The Foundation seeks educational programs that encourage collaboration among schools, parents and agencies to address innovative educational programs that encourage and foster the learning process for at-risk children.
Health & Fitness: The Foundation supports programs that provide innovative and worthwhile health programs or organized sports that encourage wellness and fitness, enabling at-risk children to reach their fullest potential.
Arts Education: The Foundation supports arts education programs that provide access to the visual and performing arts for at-risk children through a wide-array of arts and related organizations.
