Jim Pagano was a 17-year veteran of the Cranston, Rhode Island Fire Department who was also a devoted family man, loyal friend, and respected gentleman of the community. His life was senselessly cut short by gun violence, and the Pagano family established the Lt. Jim Pagano Foundation in his memory. He is dearly missed.
Jim was deeply committed to improving the quality of life for citizens in the local community, especially children. It is with courage, confidence, passion and strong moral character by which he lived his life, and it is the mission of the Lt. Jim Pagano Foundation to honor Jim’s legacy and promote these esteemed values in children so they may thrive as adults.
The mission at the Lt. Jim Pagano Foundation is to make charitable grants to individuals, groups and organizations that improve the quality of life for children, and foster character building and a strong foundation for their future. Our work is made possible by the generous contributions and involvement from the community.
