Helping young adults open doors to a brighter future… This is what Richard J. Trifiro was passionate about. It is what motivated him to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged youths by “returning to society,” in part, what he was fortunate enough to acquire in life.
Richard was an extraordinary person. He extended his goodwill to everyone he encountered and was especially dedicated to helping underserved populations of students extend their educations through need-based scholarships. Richard mentored, guided, and supported many students he met through his charitable activities, forming lasting relationships with each. Without question, he came to count every student he helped in life as a member of his family.
In 2000, Atlantic Management, under the direction and management of Anthony G. Capobianco, co-founder of Atlantic Management, founded The Richard J. Trifiro Foundation to honor Richard and carry on his philanthropic mission. The foundation’s goal is to make higher education available to high school seniors who may need financial assistance to attend or remain in college. Scholarship recipients have successfully completed undergraduate degree programs at some of the country’s finest institutions of higher education, including Brown University, University of Connecticut, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and Wentworth Institute of Technology.
From 2000 through 2016, Anthony guided the Foundation from an idea to its present robust state. It has awarded hundreds of scholarships, all in loving memory of our dear friend Richard. From 2017 and beyond, scholarships will be awarded in memory of both Richard and Anthony, as the Foundation will continue to grow under the name of the Richard J. Trifiro and Anthony G. Capobianco Foundation.
Atlantic Management is grateful for the support of many devoted contributors who continue to help make Richard’s vision a reality and honor Anthony’s dedicated work. Donations to the Richard J. Trifiro and Anthony G. Capobianco Foundation serve to honor the legacies of these two extraordinary men while benefiting many deserving young people.
