Community Giving Foundation: Danville is pleased to announce the creation of a new scholarship fund for Danville Area High School students. The Victor and Linda Marks Health Career Scholarship Fund will benefit students pursuing careers in the healthcare field, including focuses in nursing, pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, or pre-veterinary programs. Special consideration will be given to students with financial need and those who have demonstrated service to their community.
“Linda and I have both enjoyed rewarding careers in health care and would hope that others so inclined are not precluded from entry due to lack of funds,” explains Dr. Victor Marks, fundholder.
The Marks are active in the Danville community and have been connected with the Community Giving Foundation: Danville for many years. They previously established the Victor and Linda Marks Family Fund to support area nonprofit organizations serving Montour County.
“We feel very fortunate to have grown up, worked, and raised our family in this wonderful community. Danville has been good to us, and we wish to make it an even better place.”
Contributions can be made to both of the Marks funds online (search “Marks”), or mail to the Community Giving Foundation, Attn: [Fund Name], 725 West Front Street, Berwick PA 18603. To apply for this scholarship and other opportunities available through the Community Giving Foundation, click here.
Danville is an affiliate of the Community Giving Foundation, which manages nearly 300 charitable funds and makes grant investments throughout the region to improve the quality of life in the Central Susquehanna area.
