The memorial scholarship was established to foster a spirit of respect, tolerance and compassion in response to lessons learned from the Holocaust and is funded through the generosity of the Auerbach/Goldberg family.
"The selection committee was extremely moved by the compelling essays these two young women submitted," said Foundation President Pat Byrne. "They truly embody the spirit of this memorial fund. Both the Rockland Community Foundation and the Auerbach/Goldberg family are proud to honor them as the first recipients of this scholarship."
About the Rockland Community Foundation
The Rockland Community Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life for all people in Rockland County by increasing charitable giving. Its mission is to connect people and businesses with the causes that matter most to them through the creation of funds, across a wide range of interests, that donors create and the Foundation stewards. A registered, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, it is governed by a local Board of Directors and an Advisory Board comprised of community leaders from both public and private sectors.
Community foundations put philanthropy within reach, offering the ability to establish funds that will continue to give for years to come, with tax benefits that donors can take advantage of now. Most importantly, the funds stay in the community, which means donors will see the impact of their contributions in the place they call home.
