Founded in memory of Carl V. Bini, a beloved Staten Island firefighter who lost his life on September 11th, 2001, the Carl V. Bini Memorial Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the community and making a positive impact in the lives of those around them.

The foundation is committed to making a positive impact in the lives of those in need and has been working tirelessly to achieve its mission. One of its main areas of focus is supporting the families of fallen heroes. This is done by providing financial assistance, counseling services, and other forms of support to those who have lost a loved one in the line of duty.

James Prendamano, and Celia Iervasi of PreReal™, Prendamano Real Estate, have been deeply involved with the foundation. After a personal invitation from Massimo Didonna, President of the Carl Bini Foundation, Celia has been involved strongly since 2013. Celia has been involved with many different charities and foundations across Staten Island over the years of her career. 


In her own words, 

"I am proud to be a part of such an amazing organization that gives back so much to the community it serves. Over 95% of proceeds go back into the foundation and community. 

Collected over $300,000 in scholarships

Donated over $150,00 in immediate needs assistance to the community

Secured over $50,000 in PPE supplies during Covid 19 in 2020

Donated over $35,00 to local public schools serving special needs children

And much, much more!".

In addition to supporting first responders and their families, the Carl V. Bini Memorial Foundation has evolved to work to support various community-based organizations and programs. This includes providing grants to local schools, supporting homeless shelters, and assisting non-profit organizations that serve the needs of underprivileged communities.

The foundation is also committed to promoting education and helping young people reach their full potential. It offers scholarships to high school students and provides mentorship and training opportunities to help prepare them for their future careers.

The Carl V. Bini Memorial Foundation is run by a dedicated board of directors and staffed by volunteers who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of others. Through its various programs and initiatives, the foundation has been able to impact the lives of countless individuals and communities in need.
