Annual Letter To Our Benefactors

May 2014

“Whether you think you can, or think you cannot; you are correct.”
-- Henry Ford

Propelled by faith and undaunted by a challenging fundraising environment, the countless volunteers and generous benefactors of the Thomas M. Brennan Memorial Foundation have forged irrepressible hope from heartbreaking tragedy.  Since inception, in Tom’s memory we have disbursed over $296,000 in scholarship grants to 15 Boston College students.  Moreover, with an endowment that has grown to $1.8 million, we are poised to expand our impact in the future. 

Last year, the Foundation raised over $135,000. In addition, our net operating cash flow was augmented by a 6% return on our investment portfolio in 2013. The continued growth of the Foundation’s endowment has enabled us again to expand our scholarship grant program at Boston College. In 2014, the Foundation will again award four-year partial scholarships to three incoming freshmen. These new scholars will join Andrew Breckel (Hebron, Connecticut), Rachel Walker (Norfolk, Massachusetts), and Natasha Bednarz (Yardley, Pennsylvania) of the Class of 2017, Jane Motter (Hamden, Connecticut) and Erin Sutton (Hopedale, Massachusetts) of the Class of 2016, and Jameson Neseralla (Avon, Connecticut) and Kaitlyn Votta (Wallingford, Pennsylvania) of the Class of 2015 as Thomas M. Brennan Memorial Scholars at BC. We encourage you to visit the Foundation’s website ( to learn more about our current scholars.

Eight of our scholars have graduated from BC and have set out to make their mark in the world of finance, social services, education, accounting, and law. They also have given back to the Foundation by joining the Foundation's Scholarship and Investments Committees.

We hope you will join us on September 26, 2014 for the 11th Annual Thomas M. Brennan Memorial Golf Tournament at Harbor Links Golf Course in Port Washington, New York.

Thank you again for your support and for helping us to honor the memory of Tom Brennan.

Ever to Excel,

The Board of Directors
