The Dano Memorial Fund
The Dano Memorial Fund started out as a scholarship fund. For several years we used the fundraising efforts to award local area scholarships to high school students seeking higher education.
In 2020, we decided to make a shift as we continue to move forward with our fundraising efforts. While we will still award scholarships to select schools from time to time, moving forward we will select a single deserving charity each year and will donate to their worthy cause!
We are happy to report that the Dano Memorial is now an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization!
