In 2013, the Foundation assisted the St. George Theatre Restoration Inc. in its mission to provide continued estoration to the historic St. George Theatre.

In 2004, Mrs. Rosemary Cappozalo with her daughters, Luanne Sorrentino, and Doreen Cugno, started a not-for- profit organization to save the historic theatre built in 1929, and develop it into a cultural and performing arts center for Staten Island and all of New York City by providing community outreach, educational programs and public performances. Continued capital improvements to the facility included rebuilding and refitting the entire orchestra section. The project included a new semi-circle tiered platform, new carpeting, lighting, railings, cement work and all new seats. The new Richmond County Savings Foundation Circle offers 361 new luxurious red velour seats which match the ornate d├ęcor of the interior of the theatre and the existing seating elsewhere in the Theatre.
