The Fappiano Family Fund for Special Needs is one of our portfolio of charitable funds established by community members to support a cause that matters. The youngest generation of Fappianos presented a donation to Linda Toscano, the project founder of Gavin and Friends. She is transforming a house near the Guilford Green into a site for a day program for adults with disabilities in collaboration with Sarah Tuxis.
Christine and Tony Fappiano established their donor-advised fund in 2018 to support individuals with special needs relating to cognitive disabilities, including autism, Down Syndrome, and other disabilities, who require assistance to live a full and vibrant life. Over the years, they’ve given generously to many organizations that support individuals with disabilities.
