Review for Jesse Klump Memorial Fund Inc, Bishopville, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In the last year the Jesse Klump Memorial Fund launched the Worcester County Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention Program (in addition to granting a $12,000 scholarship in 2012). The Program's mission is to teach everyone the importance of recognizing suicide's warning signs and understanding how to keep a person at risk safe and secure, on the road to recovery. The Fund also hosts support group meetings for those who are grieving a loss to suicide. In just one year, many hundreds of lives have been touched, enriched and consoled by the Fund's work.

Review for Jesse Klump Memorial Fund Inc, Bishopville, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2011, the Jesse Klump Memorial Scholarship Fund will grant a $12,000 scholarship to a deserving, hard-working and compassionate young scholar. The Fund is one of the few locally-sponsored organizations to make a long-term committment to its awardees, providing support throughout an undergraduate's studies. Working as a volunteer has been the most rewarding thing I have ever done, and the Fund's success in just two short years is phenomenal.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Being privileged to give out the scholarship in 2010 to a very deserving young woman, watching the Fund's asets grow and seeing the annual scholarship increase in value over 1000% since its inception.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

It is being done, with the addition of a youth suicide awareness and prevention program to be launched this year, an effort badly needed in the local community.

Role:  Volunteer & Did all the non-profit origination work, co-chaired two successful fundraisers, donated my time and my money.
