The Elaine Trumpetto Memorial Fund

November 9, 2023

Announcing our new initiative to continue the legacy of an icon in local prevention efforts…

Many of us have had the honor of knowing Elaine Trumpetto and have been on the receiving end of her thoughtful guidance and unyielding support. Elaine’s purposeful and strategic leadership as CAPE’s Executive Director and her tireless dedication to prevention have allowed us to develop long-lasting, meaningful partnerships and demonstrate the power of prevention in our community.


Words cannot fully express our gratitude for Elaine’s presence in our lives and our community. She never turned away someone in need and was always willing to lend an empathic ear. Her tenacious perseverance was a source of inspiration for many… For this reason, we hope to continue her legacy through our new initiative: The Elaine Trumpetto Memorial Scholarship.

We will collect donations for this memorial fund throughout the year and award this scholarship to deserving local students from schools in Dutchess County each spring. With the help of Elaine’s family, we will select young individuals who mirror Elaine’s passion for serving the community and her dedication to health, wellness, and education. Those exemplary youth chosen to receive this scholarship will also be honored at our annual Anniversary Celebration Gala.

Please help us spread the word about this special initiative!

Stay tuned for further updates.
