The Ed Brennan* Memorial Golf Tournament & Banquet/Auction fundraising event is held every other spring at Club Pelican Bay. This is the primary fundraising event for The Founders Scholarship Fund and the next event will be held in April 2024.
The 2022 Event was a huge success with over $1 Million Dollars raised. Much gratitude and thanks go to the Event Committee, the FSF Board, the FSF Sponsors and Donors.
Please contact the FSF if you would like to be part of this exciting event.
*The first Board was comprised of Edward J. Brennan, Robert H. Caldwell and Jean Harford. Ed Brennan was the first to suggest the golf fundraising event and served as its Chairman. Ed Brennan succeeded Rocky Caldwell as Chairman of the Board for the Founders Fund. In 2000, the event was dedicated to the memory of Ed Brennan who passed away in 1999.
The Founders Scholarship Fund hosts a “Holiday Luncheon” every year during the Christmas/New Year’s break. The event, held at Club Pelican Bay, honors the annual scholarship recipients and is attended by board members, supporters, and the college students who are currently receiving scholarships.
Held every year at the start of the scholarship application season, counselors from Collier County high schools come to Club Pelican Bay to share information with The Founders Scholarship Fund members and each other about the upcoming graduating class.
Each Spring, The Founders Scholarship Fund honors new scholarship recipients with Scholarship Rewards Reception held at Club Pelican Bay. Trustees, parents, sponsors, and counselors gather together to congratulate and welcome students into the fold as they receive their award.
