FREDERICK, MD – March 13, 2023: The Natelli Communities Charitable Fund has been established with The Community Foundation of Frederick County and becomes one of its more than 770 component charitable funds.
Natelli Communities, a developer of master planned communities in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions of the country, has created a new fund at the Community Foundation to ensure that its charitable dollars impact Frederick County’s most pressing needs. In 2005, Thomas Natelli, president and CEO, established The Anthony M. Natelli Memorial Scholarship Fund, to honor his father and company founder. Anthony’s legacy of giving spans 25 years with the Community Foundation, having started two other funds, The Derr Fund and The Frederick County Public Schools Donor Restricted Projects/Urbana Foundation Scholarship Fund. Anthony was dedicated to community and wanted to ensure that through their work, they were able to touch people’s lives in meaningful ways.
Building upon his father’s legacy, Thomas Natelli said “As we’ve grown throughout the Southeast region, we’ve concluded that it’s often more beneficial to the local communities we operate in if our charitable funds are established locally. We’re pleased to establish a new fund in Frederick to support our local philanthropic initiatives in the county.”
