Learn More About Brendan's Legacy of Giving
Make a Donation!

Brendan McGrath was deeply committed to giving back to his community. He 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. The family wished to establish a formal mechanism to continue Brendan’s work. They requested memorial donations be made to the Agency, which were used to seed 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.
