Brendan McGrath Memorial Fund

 
  Brendan McGrath served for 21 years as a volunteer board member for the Agency, 19 of which he served as board chairperson. Under Brendan’s leadership, the Agency experienced expansion of numerous programs and services. Brendan’s family has worked closely with the Agency since his accidental death in March of 2010 to honor his legacy of giving. Memorial donations made to the Agency seeded establishment of the Brendan McGrath Memorial Fund. The Fund continues to receive financial support from the family and community at large and is used to address key needs of the Agency and customers. In 2014, the Brendan McGrath Memorial Scholarship was established and is supported through the Memorial Fund to further the Agency’s mission of helping people to achieve and sustain self-sufficiency.
