The Goggio Family Foundation was founded in 2008 by Dr. Cristina Goggio Banks. She has been engaged in philanthropic efforts since her early 30s. Of her many efforts, in 1987, she co-founded Leadership California, a non-profit public charity, to increase the visibility of accomplished women leaders in California and to expand their opportunities for higher leadership positions.

Dr. Banks created the foundation to further the development of the family’s philanthropic efforts and to transition leadership to third-generation family members. The goal of the Goggio Family Foundation is to make a difference in several important areas of need.
