The Matthew Zonghetti Scholarship Fund Inc.
In January 2019, we established The Matthew Zonghetti Scholarship Fund, Inc. as a non-profit organization. At present, we have applied for 501(c)3 status to incorporate the fund. The corporation is a means to keep Matt’s memory alive. Since Matt’s passing, we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of people within our community and beyond. We extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you.
The Matthew Zonghetti Scholarship Fund, Inc.’s purpose is meant to fulfill the importance Matt placed on academics, athletics and giving back to the Mansfield community.
The corporation provides scholarships to Mansfield Massachusetts High School graduates. Scholarships will be awarded to students who, like Matthew, take advantage of all opportunities to live life to its fullest. The first scholarship was awarded in May 2019 to a Mansfield High graduate.
In addition, the corporation provides funding to the West Side Benevolent Circle. The West Side Benevolent Circle has been helping families in Mansfield, Massachusetts since 1890. The West Side Benevolent Circle’s work continues all year long, assisting the elderly, fire victims, chronically ill and victims of domestic abuse. They assist with food, clothing, fuel costs, rent assistance, medical bills, summer camps, sports registration and equipment. The organization is present to support families dealing with hardships.
As we build the fund, our mission is to seek out other organizations that will also benefit from a contribution from The Matthew Zonghetti Scholarship Fund, Inc.
