The James P. and Debra Fitzgerald Healy Foundation is raising money to help students pay for college. Our team is running 200 miles in 24 hours for this great cause!
The James P. and Debra Fitzgerald Healy Foundation (www.healyfoundation.org) was established to support students of limited financial resources who possess unlimited potential. Through a series of fundraising events, we secure donations and award scholarship funds to lighten the financial burden for our scholars in the pursuit of their education.
We partner and collaborate with reputable educational institutions to ensure our contributions are properly allocated to deserving students. Educational institutions with which we have worked include:
The Blue White Scholarship Foundation
The James P. and Debra Fitzgerald Healy Foundation was incorporated in December 2010 and is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)3 organization.
The Foundation was created to honor James P. and Debra Fitzgerald Healy by their ten children.
James and Debra have selflessly dedicated the last thirty years of their lives to educating their children. With an incredible appreciation for education, they firmly believe that the solid foundation of a quality education should be the legacy they leave to their children. Without the benefit of college educations themselves, both are determined to do everything within their abilities to provide their sons and daughters with the gift of excellent educations: a gift their children will forever possess and a gift which Jim and Debra envision will manifest itself for the good of others.
Their vision would not be easily accomplished, but Jim and Debra have never lost focus. As a local school custodian and a nighttime deliveryman, Jim works countless hours to provide the financial means necessary to support the cost of ten educations while serving as a paramount example of honorable work ethic for his children to emulate. Debra "holds down the fort" as she works her way through reams of financial aid paperwork and myriad school visits all the while fostering an infectious atmosphere for the love of learning inside their home. James and Debra's unwavering commitment to education has not only inspired their ten children to establish this foundation but also serves as a continual reminder of the challenges which parents willingly confront to provide their children with "the gift of education."
The Foundation's mission is to celebrate the spirit of Jim and Debra for the years to come and to offer funds to support students and their families striving to share in that lifelong "gift of education."
