Frankie Poulos Foundation

"Someday I hope to have a major positive influence on people and share all the love I have received with others."

- Frankie Poulos, 1992


Each December, when we put the lights on Frankie's tree and the contributions start coming in, joy returns, and our lives, and the lives of many others, bear the unmistakable mark of his life. Since starting the Frankie Poulos Foundation in 1994, our annual Holiday fundraiser has raised over $300,000 and collected thousands of Teddy Bears for Novato Youth organizations.

That's over a QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS to non-profit youth programs in Novato!
