The Tramuto Foundation provides grants to help youths with special challenges overcome adversity and build the confidence necessary to achieve personal excellence. As a child, Donato J. Tramuto struggled with severe hearing loss. He overcame the obstacles to become an accomplished leader in the healthcare industry, elected official in the Town of Ogunquit, and board member serving on several prestigious boards. He is passionate about inspiring others to realize their own dreams through dedication and hard work.

The foundation was established in 2001, following the September 11th terrorist attacks. Donato had planned to be on Flight 175-the second plane to hit the World Trade Center. He made a last-minute decision to get on an earlier flight; his 2 close friends and 3-year old son lost their lives. The Tramuto foundation was established in their memory.


for all of your support in making the October 1st - 10th Anniversary Celebration a smashing success.

Over $150,000 raised in donations.
