Peter and Jeri Dejana have been extremely generous donors over the years, giving to many different local and regional organizations. In 2011, they decided to formalize their generosity by establishing the Peter and Jeri Dejana Family Foundation. It's focus is on organizations that offer quality services to a broad range of residents in their communities.
Whether it’s helping to fund a nutrition program at a senior citizens center, funding the construction of a food pantry at a church, or enabling a local theater to offer top quality performers for its season, the Dejana Foundation is all about helping people.
What we do and why
The Dejana family enjoys sharing their good fortune with as many others as possible. But, since the Foundation believes that help should go beyond simple monetary support, also aiding with recipient organizations’ awareness, fundraisers and other initiatives is just as important a goal.
The list of organizations the Foundation supports is truly impressive. Yet, with the extensive array of non-profits the Dejana Foundation helps, it cannot help every organization that requests funding. The Foundation focuses on helping those that support the broadest possible number of residents and in the most life-enriching way possible.
