Federlein Family Fund Donates to Calaveras Community Foundation 

Calaveras Community Foundation (CCF) has been the recipient of over $81,000 over the past several years from The Federlein Family Fund at the San Francisco Foundation specifically to benefit area seniors. An additional generous grant of $20,000 received in December enabled CCF to provide surprise grants to various local organizations. These funds are in memory of Lloyd Federlein.

Chris Federlein states, “I have had the opportunity to be involved in elder care for a number of years and have seen the impact of aging on people’s ability to make sound decisions and to continue to live safely in their own homes. It is especially difficult for seniors who have limited financial resources and no or little family support. I feel fortunate that I am in a position where I can contribute financially to organizations that help seniors not only meet their basic needs, but also enhance their quality of life. Working with the Calaveras Community Foundation to support organizations in Calaveras County that work toward those goals enables me to give back to the community and provide resources that are desperately needed.”  

Linda Kangeter, CCF President states that, “We are so grateful for the support we have received from the Federlein Family Fund. It has enabled CCF to provide funds for groups that focus on the well being of our senior population. We plan to continue our senior initiative in 2014, working to help our seniors age in place in their own homes safely and with dignity.”

CCF has disbursed the recent Federlein funds to five local organizations: Calaveras County Senior Center, Inc., Copperopolis Community Food Pantry, Good Samaritan Food Pantry-Valley Springs, Hospice of Amador and Calaveras County and Murphys Senior Center.

In a recent media piece, Lorraine Crawford, co-chair along with her husband, David, of the Copperopolis Community Food Pantry, states: “It’s an honor to be chosen by the Calaveras Community Foundation to receive such a grant. We are excited about this opportunity to do more for our seniors. They really deserve a helping hand.”

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization exclusively serving Calaveras County charitable organizations, CCF offers donors both the potential benefit of a tax deduction and the knowledge that they have helped a variety of worthy local causes. Most donations are allocated to CCF’s general grant program, but options are available for donors to direct their donation to specific purposes or organizations (as the Federlein Family Fund has done).

2015 Surprise Grant for the Copperopolis Food Pantry​

Calaveras Enterprise
January 20, 2015

The Copperopolis Community Food Pantry (CCFP) received a surprise grant from the Calaveras Community Foundation (CCF) in early January. The grant for $7500 is to be used to help feed senior citizens. These funds have been made available to CCF from the Federlein Family Fund of the San Francisco Foundation in memory of Lloyd Federlein. 

David and Lorraine Crawford, chair and co-chair of the CCFP, were stunned and delighted to learn the pantry is the recipient of the very generous new grant. The CCFP received a grant last year to feed seniors and the initiative has been very successful. The seniors love the “bonus” food they receive each month. “We do our best to choose foods we know they will like, that are easy to prepare, and take their special needs into consideration. We're very glad we can continue this program for another year.”

The Copperopolis Community Food Pantry distributes food to low-income residents of Copperopolis on the third Thursday of the month from 1-4 pm at Lake Tulloch Bible Church, 3566 Spangler Lane. The pantry is a ministry of Copper Canyon Baptist Church and LTBC, and is affiliated with Feeding America through The Resource Connection Food Bank in San Andreas.
