OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE: TO CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR UNDER-RESOURCED KIDS.
The Carmine and Frank Mangini Foundation (CFM) is a non-profit organization located in Hartford, Connecticut. Since it was established in 2002, the Foundation has awarded more than $250,000 in computer scholarships, mini grants and capital improvement projects. As an organization, we have always been committed to limiting our expenses so that we maximize the effectiveness of all the generous contributions from supporters of the Foundation. Additionally, The CFM is made up of a diverse group of volunteers who share a common belief that kids want to do the right thing but are too often left without the opportunities to make positive life choices.
WE BELIEVE THAT YOUNG PEOPLE WITH THE RESOURCES, MENTORS AND OPPORTUNITIES TO MAXIMIZE THEIR EDUCATION WILL MAKE POSITIVE CHOICES.
The Carmine Frank Mangini Foundation is taking on the responsibility to help students from all backgrounds through fundraising efforts that fund various scholarships, mini-grants, and other community projects. The Foundation’s most successful fundraising effort is an annual one-day football fundamentals camp which boasts over 7000 student athlete participants as well as thousands of volunteers such as NFL and college coaches and trainers, as well as volunteers from the community just looking to help make a difference. The camp is an opportunity for students to improve their football skills, but more importantly to work with positive role models who stress the importance of education, sportsmanship and hard work.
