I chose to name my foundation in loving memory of my Aunt Kathleen Mullally. She was a pillar in my family, to say the least, and loved every one of her nieces and nephews as if they were her own grandchildren. Every one of us always felt like we had a personal and special connection with her. She has recently passed away, and I am sure that she is right next to Jesus rooting for the Notre Dame Football team. Sadly, she never had any of her own children. Now, her legacy can support our larger human family. I am so proud to have known her, and to be a part of changing our society for the better.
Our fundraising goal for this scholarship is $50,000.00. That sum would allow us to provide a $1,000 grant to one student every semester, which will pay for approximately half of the tuition of an undergraduate at Queens College. It seems like an insurmountable task for such a meager goal, but small beginnings lead to great futures. I am counting on the generosity of everyone to help make my vision a reality, and every donation is tax deductible. I am beyond grateful to anyone and everyone who is able to contribute, no matter the amount. I have worked on this project for four years, and any gift is a loving message to myself and the Queens College community that we are supported.
