Kathleen Cellura

“Philanthropy is my passion. I have worked and invested all my life with the sole purpose of giving forward.”

Kathleen F. Cellura, an undergraduate at UB in the late 1950s—“when UB was a private university”—spent 35 years as a teacher in Western New York and Florida. Now a community philanthropist, Cellura gives grants to non-profit groups through the Kathleen F. Cellura Fund of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. She recently established an endowed scholarship for GSE students.
