The Giving Tree Fund
In 2012, Infoshred President & Founder Stacey J. Lombardo established a donor-advised fund with Hartford Foundation for Public Giving to make an impact on the Hartford community.
The Giving Tree Fund was established in honor of Stacey’s 40th Birthday. She wanted to set up a fund, not just to help people in need, but to teach her daughters: Marina, Amelia, and Marcella, about the spirit of giving to others.
The Giving Tree Fund, made its first gift to Hands On Hartford’s Backpack Nutrition Program in Spring 2014.
