Commitment to Our Community
Michael proudly dedicates his time to the Board of Advisors for the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County. An affiliate of the Pittsburgh Foundation, CFWC strengthens the Westmoreland County community through non-profit organizing, programming and giving, all of which is supported by endowed funds established by individuals, businesses, and organizations. CFWC currently has more than 220 individual donor funds, valued at $23 million, and has granted over $14 million to local nonprofit organizations. He is one of the co-founders of the “Visionaries,” a program at the CFWC dedicated to educating individuals in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s about community giving and foundations. Since 2010, the group has provided more than $30,000.00 in funding to local non-profits who develop unique programs to engage young individuals and encourage volunteering/board service. In 2017, Michael was instrumental in helping The Pittsburgh Foundation develop its own version of the Visionaries program — “New Philanthropic Leaders” – which on its own has provided substantial resources to the Pittsburgh non-profit community while at the same time developing the next generation of community-minded residents.
Additionally, Michael has dedicated over a decade of board service to Westmoreland Cleanways, the non-profit recycling coordinator for Westmoreland County, where he currently serves in the role as Vice President of the Board of Directors. He is also the past Board President for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Westmoreland County, Inc., a volunteer-based organization providing a voice in the courts on behalf of abused and neglected children in Westmoreland County.
For his commitment to the community, Michael was recognized in 2018 as “Who’s Next in Philanthropy” in the Pittsburgh-region by the Incline Magazine.
