David Morganelli Scholarship Fund
Please consider supporting a College Scholarship to Inspire Passionate, Community-Driven High School Graduates in Honor of David Morganelli
David Morganelli referred to himself as “The Best B+ Student in his class.” Yet he went on to earn degrees in Accounting and Law, pass the CPA exam on the first try, and pass the Bar in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Delaware. With a Master’s in Banking Law, David practiced Law for a Providence-and Boston-based law firm before being made partner.
Despite a demanding work schedule, he made time to chair the finance committee for his hometown of Milford, coach his children’s sports teams, raise money for the Bob Kraft Cancer Foundation, running the Boston Marathon and found a local Farmers’ Market.
Family, education, and community were always David’s top priorities, and he was known for a larger-than-life personality and his unquenchable determination to make a difference.
Tragically, David was diagnosed with an untreatable form of cancer that took him away from us when he was only 47 years old. His last request was that he not be forgotten, so his family decided to create a scholarship in his name to honor his legacy. The David Morganelli Scholarship is intended to help college-bound Milford High School graduates that have the potential to make a real difference in their communities just like David.
Recipients of the David Morganelli Scholarship will not have to apply or submit an essay. They may not finish in the top of their class academically. In fact, they will not know they have been selected until their name is called before the entire class on Senior Awards Night. Scholarship recipients will be chosen by the teachers and guidance counselors who have gotten to know these students because of their love of learning, involvement in extracurricular activities like music, theater, or athletics, and, most importantly, their contagious personalities and desire to make a difference.
The David Morganelli Scholarship Fund will be managed by the Cambridge Community Foundation, chosen because of their passion for and understanding of our mission. Our goal is to raise enough money to cover the obligatory management fees and deliver a minimum scholarship award of $1,000 to one recipient every year.
We hope you will help our mission by contributing a tax-deductible donation today. Please join us in honoring the memory of David Morganelli by helping some truly special kids pay for their college education. It is our sincere hope that every recipient of the David Morganelli Scholarship is someone who makes us smile and cheer and uses their positive energy to help make our world a better place.
