Jimmy Previti launched the Previti Memorial Foundation in 2009 to provide substantial and meaningful support to organizations that make a difference. In that time, the foundation has donated over $2 million to non-profit groups that share our mission.
There are several goals Jimmy Previti established when he created the foundation. They include:
The funds that we have provided have supported many worthy organizations with ongoing causes as well as immediate and pressing needs. Learn more about this work below.
Over the years, recipients of our philanthropic support have included Steven’s Hope for Children; Boys & Girls Club, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Ontario Montclair YMCA; Make-A-Wish Foundation; Medical Teams International and HomeAid Inland Empire. Jimmy and the Previti Foundation have been honored by the American Red Cross as the leading donor and corporate fundraiser for Hurricane Katrina.
Nearly 150 other organizations have also benefited from the foundation. Our focus has included groups within Southern California and charitable entities throughout the United States.
For nearly two decades, Jimmy Previti has donated his time to the Cedar House Life Change Center. Cedar House offers substance abuse treatment programs to area residents and helps to restore the lives of those who have been impacted by chemical dependency.
In 2012, this personal commitment led to a $100,000 donation from the Previti Foundation. The funds will allow Cedar House to continue its mission, expand its programs, and do even more good for the people it serves.
In recent giving, the Previti Foundation has provided $1 million to Loma Linda University Health to benefit the new Children’s Hospital tower and the naming of the new Learning Center.
In addition, the Previti Foundation donated $500,000 to Riverside University Health Systems Foundation to fund Pediatric items needed such as activity tablets, toys, books and bookcases for their Medical Center for children to play with while in the waiting areas.
