Don White, PRESENTE! Fund
Don White (1937–2008)
Don White was a teacher, a leader, a peacemaker, an institution of the peace and justice movement in Los Angeles for more than 30 years. He raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for scores of progressive and humanitarian organizations—he had a gift for putting people at ease, making them laugh, and inspiring them to give and be a part of something much larger than themselves.
Don passed away suddenly at his home in Los Angeles on June 19, 2008. To honor Don’s spirit of solidarity, his love of teaching, and his longstanding friendship with CARECEN, we created the Don White, Presente! Fund to raise $10,000 to subsidize CARECEN's summer STEAM program, which encourages children in kindergarten through third grade to learn through projects that use the STEM skills plus art. It is a program he would have loved.
