Calaveras Community Foundation Recognizes Federlein Donations

Linda McCall Kangeter, Planned Giving Committee Chair, CCF, presents $5,000 check to Dan Riordan, Executive Director, Hospice of Amador and Calaveras Counties

Calaveras Community Foundation (CCF) has been the recipient of over $30,000 in the past three years that have gone to specifically benefit county seniors.  These funds came to CCF from the Federlein Family Fund at the San Francisco Foundation.

Chris Federlein states: “I have had the opportunity to be involved in elder care for a number of years and have seen the impact of aging on people’s ability to make sound decisions and to continue to live in the environment they desire.  It is especially difficult for seniors who have limited financial resources and/or family support.  I feel fortunate that I am in a position where I can contribute financially to organizations that help seniors not only meet their basic needs, but also enhance their quality of life.  Working with the Calaveras Community Foundation enables me to give back to the community and provide resources that are desperately needed.”

Funds have supplemented food banks in San Andreas, Copperopolis and Mokelumne Hill. The Calaveras County and Murphys Senior Centers have been the recipients of badly needed funds.  The Volunteer Center has also benefited from the generosity of the Federlein Family Fund.  CCF recently granted Hospice of Amador and Calaveras Counties $5,000 from the Federlein donation to provide services to seniors in many communities.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization exclusively serving Calaveras County charitable causes, CCF offers to donors the potential benefit of a tax deduction and the knowledge that they have helped a variety of worthy local causes,.  Most donations are allocated to CCF’s general grant program, but options are available to donors to direct their donation to specific causes or areas (as the Federlein Family Fund has done).
