In 2017, Community Foundation Board member Marlene Mulero-Betances and her husband Robert Betances, established a donor advised fund, the Dos Abuelas Fund, to honor their grandmothers and support charitable projects that align with their values.
On May 31, 2020, Amelia Betances-Adorno, Robert's abuela (grandmother) and one of the inspirations behind the creation of the Dos Abuelas Fund, passed away. In the Betances family, she was a symbol of strength, courage, compassion, and generosity. Amelia was a selfless woman of great faith who always persevered. She will be missed by all who knew her.
During her lifetime, she impacted the lives of many family, friends, and neighbors.
Although Amelia is gone, her legacy will continue to impact countless others through grants from the Dos Abuelas Fund. To learn more about establishing a donor advised fund in honor or memory of a loved one, visit our website or contact Brenda Rigdon.
