The Dr. Angelo & Barbara Armenti Fund was created in 2009 when the Dr. Angelo & Barbara Armenti were named Philanthropists of the Year by the WCCF.
Dr. Angelo Armenti is President of California University of Pennsylvania (Cal U), one of the largest state‐supported schools in Pennsylvania.
Upon being asked by the Foundation what type of permanent fund they would like to create, the couple thought of one thing‐ the students. Dr. Armenti saw a great need for scholarships for its students and, thanks to the Dr. Angelo & Barbara Armenti Fund, Cal U students will continue to thrive.
The Armentis have a long history of promoting scholarships as well as philanthropy at the University. Through Cal U, they host an annual banquet which allows the Cal U scholarship recipients to meet their contributors. The couple hopes opportunities such as this encourage students to consider giving back to their communities and support causes important to them. Grants from this fund will go toward scholarships at California University of Pennsylvania.
