Annual Letter To Our Benefactors

March 2013

“If new difficulties arise, we must only put forth new exertions and proportion our efforts to the exigency of the times.”
-- General George Washington

Despite the tenuous economic environment of the past several years, the countless volunteers and munificent benefactors of the Thomas M. Brennan Memorial Foundation continue to drive our mission forward. In 2012, we encountered an unexpected obstacle, as our principal fundraising event was cancelled due to inclement weather (please note that it has been rescheduled for April 26, 2013). Nevertheless, we raised over $125,000 in 2012. In addition, our net operating cash flow was augmented by a 12% return on our investment portfolio in 2012. As a result, our endowment now exceeds $1.6 million. Since inception, we have disbursed over $233,000 in scholarship grants to twelve Boston College students.

The continued growth of the Foundation’s endowment has enabled us again to expand our scholarship grant program at Boston College. In 2013, the Foundation will award four-year partial scholarships to three incoming freshmen, up from two scholars during each of the past three years. These new scholars will join Jane Motter (Hamden, Connecticut) and Erin Sutton (Hopedale, Massachusetts) of the Class of 2016, Jameson Neseralla (Avon, Connecticut) and Kaitlyn Votta (Wallingford, Pennsylvania) of the Class of 2015, Max Jackson (Granby, Connecticut) and Adrian Tatro (Haverhill, Massachusetts) of the Class of 2014, and Alex Martin (Boyertown, Pennsylvania) of the Class of 2013 as Thomas M. Brennan Memorial Scholars at BC. We encourage you to visit the Foundation’s website ( to learn more about our current scholars.

Five 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 April 26, 2013 for the rescheduled Tenth Annual Thomas M. Brennan Memorial Golf Tournament at Harbor Links Golf Course in Port Washington, New York. Details of the event have been posted on our website.

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

Ever to Excel,

The Board of Directors
