A generous gift from Mildred E. Justo to PAFHE

January 24th, 2023

The Mildred E. Justo Irrevocable Trust has offered a generous gift in the amount of $5,000.00 to PAFHE on behalf of Maria Mello and Elsa Viera to Portuguese Americans for Higher Education.

Mildred E. “Millie” (Costa) Justo established the Justo Irrevocable trust in 2008 to provide a legacy after her death to many causes and we wish to express our gratitude for her support to PAFHE. Mildred was a longtime resident of Peabody and a proud and active member of the local Portuguese community who was known for her value of heritage and belief that education is key to the strength and prosperity of the community.

Thank you to all who believe and donate to PAFHE’s cause as these gifts have directly supported nearly 300 young members of the local Portuguese community (Salem, Danvers, Lynn, and Beverly) with over $250,000.00 in scholarships since 1991.
