About Our Foundation

“From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”  This principle guides the Spano Family in all its endeavors.

To broaden the scope of our charitable endeavors, The Spano Family Charitable Foundation was formed in 2005 in honor of Joseph Spano, Senior.  Its motto “Helping Hands, Linking Lives” is meant to remind us we are all inexorably linked in a community of individuals greater than ourselves – be it a local, national or international community.  The Foundation’s goal is to use our time, talent, and treasure to find ways to give others a hand up rather than a hand out.
