SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblymember Gail Pellerin (D-Santa Cruz), is pleased to introduce the Nonprofit of the Year, representing the 28th Assembly District: The Edward Boss Prado Foundation.

The Edward Boss Prado Foundation works relentlessly to empower people who are in need of resources that foster dignity and respect. Our foundation focuses on partnerships, programs, and sponsorships that directly help families most in need. The foundation manages more than 15 programs that serve the residents of several cities within the District and beyond, including Hollister, Gilroy, San Martin, Morgan Hill, and recently expanding to San Jose.

In 2013 Cecelia Ponzini son Edward Boss Prado died at the young age of 29. Cecelia started the Edward Boss Prado Foundation built on Edward’s values of generosity, sensitivity, and of good neighbors. The foundation is run by all volunteers and have served more than 20,000 families since 2013.

“It is exciting to honor deserving Nonprofits like The Edward Boss Prado Foundation, who do extraordinary work in their hometown communities. They are our unsung heroes who work tirelessly; expecting nothing in return. They deserve to be recognized for their efforts and service,” said Assemblymember Gail Pellerin.
