It’s a brand New Year and we hope you and your family have had a wonderful Holiday Season. We have great news we'd like to share with you. Registration for The Daniel Trust Awards in New York, NY and Bridgeport, CT is now open.
Daniel Trust Foundation in partnership with Berkowitz and Hanna will host two award dinners this year. One for our students and their teachers in New York City on June 6, 2019 at The 3 West Club and another for our students and their teachers in Bridgeport, Connecticut on June 13, 2019 at The Holiday Inn. The Daniel Trust Awards is hosted to celebrate the students who graduate from our High School Mentoring Program and to recognize their teachers.
Because of the generosity of our monthly donors, scholarship sponsors, and partners, Daniel Trust Foundation awarded $18,500 in scholarships to 37 students and $2,500 in honorariums to 10 teachers, for a total of $21,000 awarded to students and teachers in 2018. This year, we are awarding $28,000 in scholarships to 56 students and $4,750 to 19 teachers, for a total of $32,750 to be awarded to students and teachers in 2019.
Everything we do here at Daniel Trust Foundation is made possible by kind and generous people in the community who believe in the potential of high achieving low-income students. Members of The Daniel Trust Foundation Community are the reason why our students continue to thrive in high school, college and life.
Last year, many scholarship sponsors sent in their donations early and this helped our team tremendously as we planned for The Daniel Trust Awards. We highly encourage members of our Community who have the capacity and plan to sponsor one or more scholarships again this year to send in their donations in the first quarter (January, February or March) as it will be very helpful.
