Tim Bolger's Girls College Fund

Raising 2 Girls After Raising 3 Boys
Having raised three healthy and successful sons earlier in his life, Tim enjoyed the differences and joys of raising daughters.  From surrendering to Molly and Nora’s request to  “do” his hair, to evening ping-pong competitions, to Easter egg dyeing and decorating, Tim loved being with the girls.  Affectionately nicknamed "Bobo" by the girls,  Tim would often take the girls to restaurants encouraging them to be adventurous eaters.  The girls eagerly embraced the game and soon mastered ordering like pros from the menu.  The girls' uncles would lament that no boyfriends could afford to feed these girls with their advanced palates and sophisticated tastes.  Tim just laughed and said, "If they can't afford to wine and dine them, then they shouldn't date them!"
Molly and Nora
Molly is now 14 years old and a freshman in high school.  Like any freshman, she is navigating the adventures of high school, making new friends, tackling challenging academic subjects, and running track & field.  In addition, she loves animals and in particular horses, and has a strong creative flair that shows up in her beautiful artwork.  Molly will be attending college in 4 short years, and is serious about her high school performance to ensure she can attend a top university.

 Nora will be 11 years old this January, she is excelling in school currently enrolled in the GATE program and loves reading and STEM projects.  Beside academics Nora loves all things Disney, especially “Stitch” of Lilo & Stitch.  She is playing volleyball at school and like her sister she enjoys drawing and expressing her creative side.  Nora will be attending college in 7 years.

The Average Cost of a California University Bachelor’s Degree
According to the University of California Admissions Office (UC system) the 2017 – 2018 academic year will see costs of $34,700 per year that includes: tuition, school fees, books, and housing.  The California State University System (CSU) projects an average cost for the 2017-2018 academic year at $13,700 per year for tuition, school fees, books, and housing. 

Whether it’s a CSU or UC university, securing the girls’ future with a college degree will give them the opportunity to pursue their dreams and achieve personal and professional success in the careers.  A  Bachelor’s degree for each girl will cost between $55,000 and $138,000 depending on the college they attend.

All donations to the Go Fund Me for Molly and Nora will be 100% set aside for their education being placed in a Scholarshare 529C account.


Thank you for supporting Tim’s legacy and helping out with the girl’s education, it is greatly appreciated.
