A quiet philanthropist who believes in giving back to his community and our world, Chris Salamone generously donates his time and money to a variety of worthy causes both locally and internationally.
Mr. Salamone has always had a special place in his heart for education and helping children.
For more than a decade, he has provided complete financial support for the primary school education of more than 300 Haitian children, including school facilities, teachers, books, and supplies.
Each year Mr. Salamone also donates scholarship funds to his alma mater, Saint Anselm College, and recently provided a legacy gift to the college. The College recently dedicated the Salamone Family Athletic Hall of Fame in his honor.
While operating his education and leadership training businesses, Mr. Salamone insured that scholarships were available for students with great promise, but who lacked the financial means to attend. Over $1million dollars in scholarships were awarded to deserving students with financial need.
Mr. Salamone has provided financial support and served on the Boards of numerous non-profit institutions and organizations, including:
- Friendship Force International
- Nova Southeastern University Ambassadors Board
- International Advisory Board for Bentley University
- Symphony of the Americas
- National Italian American Bar Association (NIABA)
- Il Circolo Italian Cultural Society of Florida
- Florence Fuller Child Development Centers
- Above & Beyond Youth Ministries.
