The Joseph Plumitallo Memorial Foundation was established for two specific reasons: 1) To honor the memory of Joe and other Cantor victims of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, and 2) To aid any Cantor family with educational or other needs they may have due to their loss.
Through the years, we can unequivocally say that our Annual event has honored and commemorated our fallen friends and family members in a way that no one thought was possible. The Golf Outing truly is one of the most inspirational days of the year, as many of you have expressed to us time and time again.
And your support has been staggering: The Foundation has contributed and donated approximately $1,153,000.00 to various causes. You should be very proud for the support you have provided.
We set out to support as many Cantor families as possible. Over the years, children have graduated from their schools, and families have received assistance that has lessened their need for our support. They have expressed their sincere thanks and appreciation through cards, letters and pictures. Because fewer families require our support, we have expanded the scope and mission of the Foundation.
- We established the Joseph Plumitallo Scholarship Fund at Red Bank Catholic High School, from which Joe’s three children have all graduated from, the school is planning to name a renovated classroom in Joe’s name.
- We also contribute to the Peter Milano Scholarship Fund, established by family and friends of Peter, who also worked at Cantor.
- Other worthy causes that we continue to support: The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which is a leading provider of support for the men and women of our Armed Forces and their families. This Fund was established as an independent not-for-profit organization in 2003 and provides support for families of military personnel who gave their lives in service to our nation, as well as those who were severely wounded. We have added Tuesday’s Children fund this year to continue our assistance of 9/11 families.
- The National September 11 Memorial & Museum which is located at the sight of The World Trade Center; Lead the Way Fund which was started to honor the memory of Sgt. James J. Regan it was established to support disabled U.S. Army Rangers & the families of Rangers who have died, have been injured or are currently serving in harm’s way around the world; Ronald McDonald House. The past two years we have added Tuesday's Children to our list, formed after 9/11. It is a response and recovery organization that supports youth, families and communities impacted by terrorism and tragic loss.
