Established in memory of the late legendary chef Tomaso Maggiore, the family-owned and operated restaurant group, The Maggiore Group, is proud to announce the formation of The Tomaso Maggiore Culinary Arts Foundation.
Tomaso Maggiore’s life was dedicated to the culinary industry— it was his greatest passion. Because of this, the charitable mission behind the foundation is to provide support and promote education in the area of the culinary arts.
We are truly grateful for the generous outpouring of support being provided to the foundation by those who were touched by and who wish to honor the memory of our father, Tomaso.– Joey Maggiore, president of The Tomaso Culinary Arts Foundation
Tomaso’s children, Joey and Melissa, and Joey’s wife Cristina will act as the directors for the new foundation. To further the foundation’s mission, the board will establish a scholarship that supports students pursuing an education in the culinary arts. The selection criteria, application process and value of the scholarship awards will be announced soon.
We very much appreciate everyone’s patience as we finalize the scholarship details. Our family and the staff of our businesses have had a lot to adjust to in the short time since his passing. However, we look forward to announcing specifics as soon as we can.– Joey Maggiore, president of The Tomaso Culinary Arts Foundation
The foundation is established as an Arizona nonprofit corporation and is in the process of being recognized as a tax-exempt charity by the U.S. Department of Treasury.
For those who wish to support its charitable mission, memorial gifts and monetary contributions are always accepted and appreciated.
Anyone wishing to make a contribution to the foundation can make a check payable to “The Tomaso Maggiore Culinary Arts Foundation” and mail it to 14747 N Northsight Blvd., Suite 106, Scottsdale, AZ 85260.
