Giancarlo Cetrulo , a former non-profit director of the largest conservation corps in the nation, the Los Angeles Conservation Corps, is ORCA’s first Director of Corporate Foundation and Relations. During his 9 years with the Corps, Giancarlo utilized his masters degree in marine biology to run a marine aquarium and coastal habitat restoration program through the employment of at-risk youth. In addition to writing grants, Giancarlo is creating a strategic plan for grant solicitation to identify worthwhile funding sources at the federal and regional agencies as well as family and community foundations. His goal is to prioritize ORCA's funding needs, identify sources of income with strong potential, research grant requirements, and coordinate with the ORCA team to produce high quality proposals in a timely fashion.
