Brookfield, Wis. – The Funeral Service Foundation is pleased to announce an $85,050 major gift from Memorial Classic Inc. in support of the Foundation’s Memorial Classic Golf Tournament Scholarship and its mission to fund the projects and programs that support all of funeral service in building meaningful relationships in the community.
Established in 2010 by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees for deserving students of funeral service, the Memorial Classic Golf Tournament Scholarship is one of four scholarships available to full- and part-time students enrolled in ABFSE-accredited schools.
Each year the Memorial Classic Golf Tournament, hosted by Johnson Consulting Group, raises money for scholarships across the profession and dedicates the day’s play in memory of those who have made a lasting impact in funeral service. This year’s play was dedicated to Stephen Mack, Edward Murphy and Edward Tuggle.
“This major gift demonstrates sustained commitment to the future of the funeral service profession and attracting and retaining future leaders by all involved with the Memorial Classic,” said Foundation Executive Director Danelle O’Neill during the annual Funeral Service Foundation donor appreciation reception last week in Indianapolis, Indiana.
“Memorial Classic Inc. is privileged to regularly support the Foundation’s efforts to serve funeral service professionals throughout every stage of their career,” said Tom Johnson, founder of Johnson Consulting and Foundation trustee emeritus. “We look forward to seeing the students who are awarded the Memorial Classic Scholarship become the next trailblazers in our profession.”
