Funding Dignity & Hope in South Jersey

The Domenica Foundation was established in 1991 to honor Pepe Piperno’s mother, Domenica. Domenica was entirely other-centered, filled with compassion and called to help those who needed a hand up. The foundation named for her carries forward her generous spirit by helping to improve the quality of life for South Jersey residents.
