College Scholarship Reception
For the past 29 years the DJCF has been honoring college scholarship recipients and their generous donors in a celebratory reception.
This year’s reception will be virtual on June 3 at 6:30pm. We will still extend our sincere appreciation to the donors who make education dreams come true and the remarkable, diverse students who are the recipients of their generosity. This annual event says so much about the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation and the ways we connect so many together. It’s fitting that the reception committee chose the theme Connecting Community this year.
Hardworking. Determined. Intelligent. Inspiring. These are just a few qualities that describe the recipients. The review committee read applications about students reaching life-long dreams of attending law and medical school, students overcoming immense learning challenges to become first generation college students, young people studying abroad with hopes of working on human rights issues, and more. The challenges did not define these young people, though. It inspired them. Year after year, the committee awards scholarships, but the funny thing is, they are the ones left inspired by these young people and grateful to know them.
Please rsvp today to the reception by emailing email@example.com. We look forward to celebrating with you and so many others at this annual event!
