FAB for Life was founded in 2007 to continue the legacy of Frances Amalfi-Bennett, a lifelong educator of Special Education who was dedicated to the success of her students, both in the classroom and in life. Our mission is to recognize and reward students that have overcome adversity throughout their lives, by providing them with this award and scholarships that help them jumpstart their futures after graduation. Since inception in 2007, we have now awarded over $150,000 to 102 students.
This year, we are awarding 12 scholarships for $1,500 each. We typically have a fundraiser to raise the requisite funds, but can't have one this year due to COVID. We need your help to keep providing these awards to students that deserve a boost as they finish high school!
The awards go to students who have exhibited strength and perseverance through adversity, whether it be through learning disabilities, family or financial challenges or something else. Along with perseverance, they have had to exhibit their dedication to their community and school through community service.
Your money will help the students offset tuition costs and the recognition of receiving these awards helps to drive them forward as they begin their college careers.
