The Jack DeVito Foundation was founded in memory of Jack DeVito, a dedicated and deeply involved Yorktown community member who contributed to various causes.
DeVito worked to provide enhanced athletic and academic programs in his community and coached both girls’ and boys’ basketball and baseball in the Yorktown Athletic and Mohansic Boys Clubs for 35 years. He served as the Youth Chairman for the Yorktown Lions Club and participated in the awarding of scholarships on behalf of the Yorktown Lions and Circolo DaVinci Clubs to local area youths.
He was also a founding member of the Circolo DaVinci Club, an organization committed to promoting Italian culture and heritage through various community-oriented projects and activities. He also supported the Guiding Eyes for the Blind, the Yorktown Volunteer Fire Department, and the Yorktown Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
Since his passing in 1993, the Foundation has supported numerous causes including the reconstruction of The Yorktown Teen Center; The Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, concerts at The Gazebo, Teatown Lake Reservation, the Yorktown Community Nursery School, Support Connection and more.
