The Samuel Staten, Sr. Charitable Trust – Background

The mission of The Samuel Staten, Sr. Charitable Trust, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is to provide a variety of services to the needy and otherwise underserved community members throughout the five county area of Philadelphia. This mission is achieved through a variety of fundraising events and activities.

The Samuel Staten, Sr. Charitable Trust was known as The Laborer's District Council Charity Fund until 2011. The name of the charity was changed to honor Samuel Staten, Sr., the man who founded the LDC Charity Fund through a purely unselfish act of charity during his time as Business Manager of Laborers' Local 332 and Secretary Treasurer of the Laborers' District Council of the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area and Vicinity.

The board is dedicated to continuing Mr. Staten, Sr.'s legacy of charitable giving. We will continue to spread his message and prove that organized labor truly makes a difference in the community!

With your support, we have brought our total raised in 17 years to over $2,000,000. Proceeds from this event will benefit various 501(c)3 charities including the Qa'id Staten Memorial Scholarship Fund!
