Giving Tuesday - November 2021
For the fifth year in a row, the Frank R. Williams Scholarship Fund participated in Giving Tuesday on Tuesday, November 30. Giving Tuesday was a wonderful opportunity for people to transform their communities and the world around them through giving. Our fundraising goal of $4,000 allowed us to continue to award a four-year college scholarship to a deserving Calvin Coolidge Senior High School student.
Since the Fund’s inception 14 years ago, we have awarded financial scholarships to 22 college-bound Calvin Coolidge Senior High School students.
