Scholarship Fund

The Dan & Dee O’Donnell Memorial Scholarship Fund was implemented in 2017 to provide tuition assistance to graduating high school seniors.  A minimum of two $1,000 scholarship awards will be announced and given at the O’Donnell & Friends Open every June.

This service-based scholarship was created to honor the legacy of Dan & Dee O’Donnell and their commitment of improving the lives of those in need through their lifestyle of selfless service. Potential recipients of the scholarship will be considered based on the applicant’s active involvement in the community.

In 2020, O’Donnell & Friends Charities was honored to provide scholarships to 14 students who had demonstrated an impact they had in their community.  Congratulations to the following individuals who received awards under the Dan & Dee O’Donnell Memorial Scholarship:
