2018 – 2021 Founders Scholarship Fund Board Chairman – Adam Crescenzi

Educating our children is an imperative for our society especially in our global competitive world. The financial expense of a college education or professional careers for Collier County (FL) High School graduates can prevent them from pursuing their dreams.

Through the foresight of Club Pelican Bay golf members, The Founders Scholarship Fund (501 c3) was established in 1991 to provide scholarship aid to students pursuing a higher education or professional development. Since the founding, we have awarded over $4 million dollars to over 700 students. If we had the resources, the need is so great, we could award scholarships to twice the number of students.

If you would like to help, please contact any member of our board of trustees.
