Well known for its charitable history, the W.E. Bassett Co. and the Bassett family have supported Valley nonprofits for nearly 70 years.
As a result, William C. Bassett was honored with the first Joseph A. Pagliaro, Sr. Philanthropic Award at the Valley Community Foundation’s 10th Anniversary celebration in June.
Bill, pictured here with his wife Judy and children Lynne Perry, Betsy DePaolo and Bill (W.H.), have continued the legacy of philanthropy begun by William E. and Harry Bassett, through the Bassett Family Fund at the Valley Community Foundation.
There is a full story about the Bassett family on the Valley Community Foundation’s website, which can be accessed at http://www.valleyfoundation.
