Toni Corinealdi is the Director of Community & Partner Engagement for Fund My Future and has worked for Propel Charter Schools since 2008. As Program Manager from 2017-2019, she oversaw the county-wide expansion of Fund My Future, while continuing to manage Fund My Future at 13 Propel Charter Schools.
In 2020, the program expanded again, making this unique savings opportunity available to all families in the state of Pennsylvania. During the initial phases of the planning, she played a leading role providing information and training for the statewide expansion.
Toni believes that Fund My Future is an amazing opportunity available to all families in Pennsylvania. Her vision is that all students in Pennsylvania can graduate from high school with savings available for educational or career goals, giving them a jumpstart on life, building their confidence and preparing them to reach their lifetime goals.
She is a graduate of Point Park University with a Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Leadership. She is also the mother of two beautiful daughters and grandmother of one dedicated Fund My Future participant who enjoys saving money for her future. She is also the proud recipient of the Clarion University Community Award for implementing the Clarion Emerging Scholars Program at Propel High Schools.

Michele Gronsky is the Fund My Future Clerk. She is a former employee of PNC Bank where she worked as a Senior Financial Consultant. She has achieved some of the highest recognitions awarded by the bank. She feels her greatest accomplishment was when she was able to find the best savings products for her clients and watch their investments grow!
As a parent of 5 children and a grandparent of 6, Michele understands the importance of finances. She opened savings accounts for all of her children when they were infants and has done the same for her grandchildren. “When my children were small they knew any birthday or holiday money they received would be deposited into their bank accounts.” As a result of this, her children were able to get an education, purchase homes and automobiles, and establish a savings routine of their own. Her goal is to instill the same savings habits with her grandchildren so they too can fulfill their dreams and aspirations!
