The Frank Campano Memorial Fund is named in honor of Florida’s greatest champion of migrant children. Frank Campano was a “true gentleman” in every sense and a resolute visionary who tirelessly and passionately sought out educational opportunities and scholarships for migrant farmworker children and youth in our state. Frank established, coordinated and nurtured the nationally recognized Florida Migrant Education Summer Institutes for many years, brought the PASS and Close Up Migrant Programs to Florida, and at the time of his death in 1998, he was the Director of Florida’s Migrant Secondary Service Center in Plant City, Florida.
The Frank Campano Memorial Fund supports two distinct awards for deserving children, youth, and adults who currently participate or have participated in one of the two state programs for migrant and seasonal farmworkers in Florida. These state programs are: the Title I, Migrant Child Education Program and the Farmworker Jobs and Education Program (formerly known as the Adult Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker Program).
The Frank Campano Memorial Fund also provides emergency aid and supports advocacy efforts on the behalf of Florida migrant farmworkers and their families. An Award Selection Committee exists for the purpose of coordinating fund raising activities and selecting awardees in accordance with established criteria.
I am very pleased to announce that the Frank Campano Memorial Fund has been incorporated into the Harvest of Hope Foundation. The agreement between the Frank Campano Memorial Fund Committee and the Harvest of Hope Foundation has been made to promote the growth of the Frank Campano Memorial Fund and its ability to help more Florida migrant families.
Under the umbrella of the Harvest of Hope Foundation, the Frank Campano Memorial Fund will have the institutional sponsorship and support of this nationally recognized Foundation. In addition, tax-deductible donations will be accepted by the Harvest of Hope Foundation and can be reserved for the Memorial Fund as designated by the donor.
Your support will be crucial to helping the Frank Campano Memorial Fund serve Florida migrant farmworkers and their children. In honor of Frank, please consider making a donation to the Harvest of Hope Foundation, 5809 NW 67th Ct., Gainesville, FL 32653. Please indicate that the donation is reserved for the Memorial Fund.
