Led by Executive Director, Donald "Skip" Smith, Program Coordinator Lisa Fernald, and Thrift Store Supervisor Mary Ciccitelli, (all in part-time positions), with the help of over 45 dedicated and talented volunteers, SHARE Fund delivers direct services and provides support activities to run our non profit organization. Our volunteers generously share their time for the benefit of others, and without them, the SHARE Fund could not operate!
The SHARE Fund benefits from diverse funding sources. We receive local government grant funding as well as the SHARE Fund is a United Way agency and receives grant funding from several private foundations.
The agency conducts fundraising activities each year and generates program income through the thrift store component
of the Community Clothing Shop. Major financial support for the SHARE Fund comes from the generosity of our local
individuals, businesses, religious organizations, and civic groups in our community.
The SHARE Fund began over 25 years ago as an outreach ministry program of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church in Rochester. With the help, support, and guidance of the Parish, the SHARE Fund grew into a successful assistance service. In 2008, the SHARE Fund became an independent nonprofit agency, federally registered as a 501c3 public charity. With the strong roots provided by the church, the SHARE Fund continues to grow and has become an integral service provider for people in need living in our community.
An active and involved Board of Directors guides the direction of the SHARE Fund, provides fiscal oversight, participates in fundraising activities, and helps establish effective policies and practices.
