The Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation


The Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation (DMF) is a nonprofit organization that works tirelessly in support of cancer research. It was started by the late Tita and Joseph Monti, founders of the Crest Hollow Country Club, in memory of their son who died of acute myeloblastic leukemia when he was 17 years old.

Since 1972, DMF has raised more than $36 million in support of the cancer research conducted at Cold Spring Harbor Labs, education, fellowship and patient care. The foundation is now under the direction of President Caroline Monti Saladino and her brother Richard Monti, Crest Hollow’s Chief Executive Officer. They work closely with the Northwell Health, where the six Don Monti Cancer Centers treat thousands of cancer patients.
