Toni Corinealdi is the Fund My Future Program Program Manager for Propel Schools. As a child growing up in Brooklyn, New York, she had the opportunity to save money in a bank through her elementary school, and still remembers the feeling of pride and accomplishment as she watched her account grow. Her vision is a savings account for all students who graduate, building their confidence and preparing them to reach their goals.
At Propel, she has worked to make saving money more fun and exciting for the students through incentives and raffle drawings. As a result, the number of students making regular deposits has grown to 1,900, approximately half of the student population.
Toni has worked for Propel Schools for nine years, as an Administrative Assistant, Afterschool Supervisor, and Fund My Future Building Coordinator. In addition to her responsibilities at Propel, she also provides assistance to our community partners and champions in the county-wide expansion effort.
Ms. Corinealdi is a graduate of Point Park University with a Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Leadership. In 2015, she received the Clarion University Community Award for implementing the Clarion Emerging Scholars Program at Propel High Schools.

Victoria Heverley is a native Pittsburgher and graduate of the University of Pittsburgh. With a degree in Media and Professional Communications, Victoria’s true passion was discovered while pursuing a certificate in Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies as an undergraduate student. This academic undertaking led to an interest in social justice and a desire to help facilitate upward economic mobility for Pittsburgh’s most marginalized residents. Her early career in residential apartment leasing inspired her career transition into the nonprofit sector helping families realize financial success and equitable community growth.
Victoria, Program Coordinator at NeighborWorks Western Pennsylvania, joined NeighborWorks in April 2016, coordinating the organization’s Homebuyer Education Program. Later that year, she transitioned into the Fund My Future Program, working closely with Propel Schools to support deposit and account management and also coordinating the launch of an expanded Fund My Future site at the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh’s Bedford Dwellings community.
