Summary: The Haigh-Scatena Foundation provided grants in Mendocino County, California to support programs promoting youth leadership, empowerment, and media literacy. Haigh-Scatena’s founders, Isabelle Simi Haigh and Tadini Bacigalupi, Jr., intended the Foundation to sunset. The appropriate time came and the remaining assets were distributed and business affairs concluded by 2009.
During its lifetime, the Foundation was run by Ron Clement, who operated the Foundation from an office in his home, charged with seeking out and supporting advocates and organizers striving to improve their communities and, often, statewide policies affecting kids and families.
