One of the best small non-profits available today. The foundation gives scholarships to pursue higher education for those individuals who have survived childhood cancer. The foundation is built from the ground up and continues today on the heart and soul of two incredible people Mario and Franci! They are the most genuine people and often talk to people interested in the scholarship for hours. It is a great Foundation to support!

90% of our donations go to help cancer survivors with their college expenses. 98% of our scholarship recipients have received their degree and are working. Our graduates include engineers, researchers, teachers and nurses along with other professions.

I was a recipient of a college scholarship from the Stephen T Marchello Scholarship Fund that allowed me to receive a tremendous college education. Due to having cancer at a young age, my childhood was drastically different from a typical upbringing. From doctors appointments, treatments, and surgery children that undergo treatment for cancer face many unique challenges. The foundation works to ease the financial burden for these children as they look to receive a college education. The foundation was instrumental in my education and I believe in their work wholeheartedly and therefore now am on the board looking to help enable the foundation to support the education goals and dreams of childhood cancer survivors.

This non profit does not have any paid positions so the money that they receive by donations, grants and fundraising is given to scholarship recipients. The organization awards grants to graduating high school seniors who have survived childhood cancer. This is important work as many parents of children with cancer are not able to save for college due to high medical expenses. When donating to this organization you can be assured that your donation goes directly to the kids!

I've been involved with the scholarship foundation since its inception and I am so very proud of what we’ve accomplished thus far.

While the organization is supportive of the great efforts made in the cancer research arena, we've chosen to help the survivors and their families by
providing scholarships and grants to deserving young adults.

When Steve and his family were going through the treatment regiments, we saw numerous families pull together and focus on supporting their children making great sacrifices both emotional and financial. Often times these efforts depleted family savings and/or college funds that may have been growing to pay for college educations.

Helping cancer survivors continue their education and help brighten their future has been such a rewarding experience for me. I hope others will see how worthwhile these students are and help us support them in obtaining their education and fulfilling their ambitions.

It's been very rewarding to witness the scholarship winners complete their higher education and to begin to give back of themselves. I feel we've been successful in assisting some fine young men and women in obtaining their educational goals and very fortunate that the winners have been such strong characters. It's been a great pleasure to see them return and to have compounded our investments by giving back of themselves to carry the organization further.

I'm very proud of the gift our members and local businesses have made in donating their time and resources so that we can provide as much money as possible to the deserving students. Even with such giving, my obvious change for the organization would be that we could be better funded and could continue to expand so that more deserving young adults could improve or even obtain that secondary education.
