A Passionate Ambition

At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since.

Albert and Mitsie Scaglione maintain a passionate ambition to improve the lives of others through personal giving and through the Park West® Foundation.

The financial gifts and personal investments of the Scagliones into the lives of young people are inspired by their passion for making a measurable difference. Their goal is transformation so that children emerge from poverty as healthy, productive adults.

The Scagliones and the Park West® Foundation. have also donated extensive collections of art and art books to many universities. Through their generosity, students, faculty, staff, visitors, and aspiring artists can bathe their minds in rich portrayals of artists from around the world.
