About the Foundation

The Marini Family Trust was created in 1954 in accordance with the wishes of Frank Marini by his sisters Margaret Marini, Annie Marini, Rose Marini and Jennie Marini. The trust was created for the benefit of the University of San Francisco (formerly the San Francisco College for Women), St. Nicholas Catholic Church, and various other charities supported by Mr. Marini during his lifetime. The Marini family members were residents of Los Altos, California.
