Founded by Susan C. Compofelice to support organizations seeking to help Frederick County residents receive training for construction trades in the Frederick County area.
The fund was established by Susan Compofelice in honor and memory of her husband, Joe, whose dedication to hard work, learning new skills, and mentoring others is just a few of things that will be remembered about him. Joe began learning to paint homes at the age of 12 and went on to acquire multiple building skills on the job. After serving in the Navy, his government career began at the Department of Energy. His broad knowledge, his ongoing quest for perfection, and his motivation to continually learn new skills enabled him to advance to the position of Project Manager at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
