Founded in memory of Olga Doris Pinto (nee Kefalas) by Dr. Peter Pinto and continued by his children and grandchildren, the Kefalas-Pinto Foundation aims to keep Olga and Peter’s inspiration alive through the promotion of the characteristics that best represented them in life. A desire to help those in need (with a special focus on children), a love of learning, perseverance in difficult times and devotion to family and friends, were themes throughout their lives and the Foundation provides support to charities and organizations that share these values.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs, who comes short again and again,
because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;
but who does actually strive to do the deeds;
who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,
so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
who neither know victory nor defeat.”

― Excerpt from Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “Citizenship in a Republic”
Delivered at the Sorbonne, Paris, France, on April 23, 1910
