The Salvitti Family Fund was created in conjunction with Dr. E. Ronald Salvitti being selected as the WCCF’s 2001 Philanthropist of the Year.
With a resume boasting not only a successful ophthalmologic career, experience teaching in 25 states and 2 countries, his design of innovative lenses for cataract surgery, and various awards; but also a commitment to community betterment and philanthropic generosity.
Dr. Salvitti is the founder and medical director of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Eye Center.
An active leader in our community, Dr. Salvitti has been involved with the boards of The Washington Hospital Foundation and the Temple University Medical Alumni Association. He is a member of the Board of Trustees of Washington & Jefferson College and is founding member of the Malcolm Parcell Foundation Board of Directors.
To take his community service a step further, he established the Salvitti Family Foundation and the E. Ronald Salvitti, M.D. Endowed Medical Scholarship. Through these vehicles of service he continues to support the local community.
The Salvitti Family Fund, a permanent fund at the WCCF, will exist as yet another lasting gift of service to the community which Dr. Salvitti holds so dear. Annually, Dr. Salvitti and his family will consider charitable causes to support from the fund.
