From the Ashes to Scholarships

Editor's Note:  For the next few days The Daily Prism will showcase how the human spirit can rise to bring good back in action, even after a shocking act of violence.

The Michael Lynch Memorial Foundation is a scholarship program. Its purpose is to provide grants to enable children of firefighters and other victims of the September 11 attacks and other fires and disasters to afford higher education.

Thanks to the continued generosity of donors over the past 12 years, the foundation has granted 137 college scholarships totaling more than $3.5 Million dollars to a very deserving group of students. Importantly, since the Michael Lynch Memorial Foundation is an All-Volunteer organization, 98 cents of every dollar donated is directed to the scholarship program…This foundation provides the means to help change the world in which we live, one person at a time, by building a vision for the future where the students of today become tomorrow’s stewards of peace and freedom.
