Myrna Abramowicz, a longtime Napa resident, established a charitable fund shortly before her death in May of 2013. After her death, her friends and family continued to contribute to her fund, and her son, Steve Abramowicz, also started a charitable fund that works in conjunction with his mother’s fund to make grants that carry out Myrna and her family’s charitable wishes.
Abramowicz was a civic activist, and a dedicated supporter of environmental, educational and political causes in Napa.
She established her fund with a focus on programs for children and youth in Napa County that promote awareness, understanding and appreciation of our natural environment — as well as provide access to parks and open spaces.
“The funds are an example of how a donor can make a lasting difference and leave a legacy for their community,” said NVCF President Terence Mulligan. “Through her fund, her family can continue to support the work to which she was so dedicated during her lifetime.”
