Because of the generosity of so many people in this community, in 2016 the Bill Sugra Memorial Fund will be able to distribute $77,000 to honor Bill’s memory to the following organizations:
We are continuing our matching scholarship with IUP for a needy student - Bill attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania and truly loved the education that he received there. There is a memorial to 3 students who graduated from IUP who were tragically killed at the World Trade Center.
Programs essential to the health, welfare and educational needs of children in our community.
Ensuring that people who need help with the basic essentials of life are given every opportunity.
Providing support and access to care for those with special needs.
Providing support for those services that help seniors live independently and with dignity.
The Bill Sugra Memorial Fund is established in memory of Bill Sugra, a truly compassionate, caring and loving young man whose life was tragically taken in the terrorist acts of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center in New York City. The purpose of the fund is to encourage, support and assist the needy and disadvantaged to improve their lives during times of difficulty, regardless of geographic location, race, religion or gender.
(The maximum single grant per agency will be no greater than $5,000, and
depending on the number of applicants, many small grants may be awarded.)
Due Date: JULY 1st.
