Giving Tuesday - Faustino Bernadett, Supporter of Los Angeles Challenge
Updated: Jan 19
GivingTuesday is a movement created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. GivingTuesday was born and incubated at the 92nd Street Y and its Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact in New York City. GivingTuesday is now an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
In honor of #GivingTuesday, Faustino Bernadett would like to highlight the organizations he has supported this month.
The first organization Faustino would like to highlight is Los Angeles Challenge.
Los Angeles Challenge was built on the foundation of promoting positive change among economically disadvantaged children. They help create opportunities for educational achievements by providing a learning environment that optimizes academics, character development, personal attention, and diligence. They hope these children can become well-equipped for future academic endeavors while experiencing the joys of learning.
We’re embracing the “challenge” of promoting positive change in the lives of economically disadvantaged children by providing opportunities for achievement through high-quality kindergarten through high school education.
This month, Faustino Bernadett and his wife Martha Bernadett donated $10,000 to Los Angeles Challenge. They chose to support this organization because of its mission of educating children. Since 2004, Faustino and Martha Bernadett have been focused on helping nonprofits that reduce disparities in access to education and health.
Through the nonprofit Faustino and Martha Bernadett founded in 2004, The Molina Foundation, they have worked with more than 2,500 organizations and schools, donating over 8 million books and hosting workshops and programs for educators and families.
