Full Circle Philanthropy
Florida Marine Transporters, a fund holder at the Foundation, held their annual golf tournament recently which raised more than $158,000 to directly benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Thanks to generous donors like FMT, families never receive a bill from St. Jude who treats more than 8,500 sick children every year. The hospital also focuses on research to increase survival rates, which in turn helped Margaret Larsen, a Foundation scholarship recipient who is at present battling cancer.
Completing the circle of philanthropy, Margaret, with the help of the St. Tammany Cancer Fund, is studying at Rhodes College and applied for and has been awarded a fellowship with St. Jude to research malignant tumors to help improve treatments for cancer patients like herself.
“The scholarship I received through the NCF means everything to me. Without it I would not still be at LSU. I thank every single one of you for believing in me. I will not disappoint!”
– Miya Tate, Bogalusa Fund Scholarship Recipient
