Our Goal

 The Gen Giammanco Foundation provides financial support to deserving college bound student athletes who exhibit the passion and commitment to achieve their dreams of both scholastic and athletic success.

We also support local middle and high school athletic programs to assist aspiring student athletes.  Since it's inception in 2011, the Gen Giammanco Foundation has awarded over $170,000!  It is the overriding mission of the Giammanco Foundation to reach as many student athletes as possible in their pursuit of scholastic and athletic success.

100% of donations received through ongoing private donations, grants, sponsorships, and annual fundraisers are given to deserving student athletes.


I have known for a long time that I was meant to be a Chico State Wildcat, and I am so thankful for the Gen Giammanco Foundation in being able to help me achieve here, both in the classroom and on the volleyball court.
