2017 Donors and Sponsors


Thank you to all of the support for the Thomas G. Welch Memorial Scholarship fund this year. The sponsorship’s, donations as well as time donated to support the scholarship was overwhelming. In 2017, we raised $21,000 through generosity of Tom’s friends and family as well as the local business within the community. We held our second golf tournament in Tom’s name and it was very successful. Our current fund balance is at $, this is nearly half way to the amount required for the scholarship to be perpetual through the Rochester Community Foundation. The event was fun, with beautiful weather and culminated in a release of balloons with memories of Tom attached to them.  In all the event raised approximately $20,000 for the endowment.   Every donation is greatly appreciated.   If you have not been able to donate and would like you can go to www.racf.org and search for the Thomas G. Welch Memorial Scholarship or mail a check to Thomas G. Welch Scholarship in care of the Rochester Area Community Foundation located at 500 East Avenue, Rochester NY, 14607.

This year’s golf tournament will be held on July 14, 2018 . We hope to see you there. You can find out more information at http://www.tomwelchscholarship.com. We will also try to keep the Thomas G.
