The Matthew Zonghetti Scholarship Fund Inc.
In January 2019, we established The Matthew Zonghetti Scholarship Fund, Inc. Effective October 25, 2019, the organization was awarded 501(c)3 status and is listed as a public charity. 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. We have awarded scholarships to seven Mansfield High graduates.

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.
