Raise $110,000 to endow a Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation “Capt. Bill McBride Honorary Scholarship”. This would net enough to endow an annual scholarship and fund an Announcement Dinner for up to 100 individuals at the Tampa Yacht Club. If we do not reach our goal, the net revenue and any investment income will be used to support annual scholarships in memory of Bill until the funds are depleted.
- A committee of volunteers (retired Marines and supporters) in the Tampa area are conducting the campaign under the auspices of the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation with headquarters in Alexandria, VA. The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and our audited financials are at www.mcsf.org.
- Students attending the University of Florida will receive priority for the scholarship. If there is no eligible applicant from the University of Florida, second priority will be to students from the Tampa/Central Florida region.
- Our committee is soliciting support at the following levels:
- McBride Scholarship Champion: $10,000 and above.
- McBride Scholarship Team: $5,000 and above.
- Bill McBride Boosters: $1,000 and above.
- Bill McBride Friends: Any donation
- Please send your donation payable to MCSF to:
