Courageous Medical Workers are fighting a faceless enemy.

Many doctors, nurses and first responders sacrificed their lives taking on a deadly pandemic. We can thank them by educating the children they left behind.

Open Hearts Opens Doors

The Medical Workers Scholarship Fund(MWSF)

We are creating the Medical Workers Scholarship Fund(MWSF). Its purpose is to raise funds to provide scholarships to sons and daughters of frontline medical workers who have lost their lives fighting Covid-19.   It takes massive doses of courage to go into battle against a worldwide pandemic with nothing but protective clothing defending against an unseen enemy.

In gratitude for their heroism fighting a faceless enemy, I believe we have a responsibility to take care of those affected by the loss of mothers and fathers who were doctors, nurses and nonmedical personnel charged with care of patients and maintenance of order and cleanliness. Together we can provide educational opportunities for their surviving children.

Because of its ambitious nature, starting an organization such as MWSF is time-consuming and costly. We are using the fundraising platform GoFundMe to pay necessary fees ($600-$1700) to establish a tax-deductible 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Being "501(c)(3)" means that a particular nonprofit organization has been approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt, charitable organization."  Legal and accounting fees ($1,000 - $3000) are additional costs. As this project matures and to the extent funds are available, we plan to separate the project from the Spirit of Freedom Foundation turning it over to established well-qualified executives and staff to implement the project mission and move it forward.

With the exception of start-up organization expenses, all funds raised will be directed toward the scholarship mission. "The majority of banks have trust departments and offer their customers the option of opening a trust account. A trust account allows a person or entity to control the account's assets on behalf of a third party or beneficiary, such as setting up a college tuition fund. One of the main benefits of a trust account is that it allows the trust's creator, called the "grantor," to establish their own terms for how they want their assets managed and distributed to the beneficiaries." Upon reaching our initial GoFundMe goal, our plan includes immediate creation of a Medical Workers Scholarship Fund trust account into which donations will be deposited.

When MWSF is sufficiently able to operate on its own, we will set up the Medical Workers Scholarship Foundation to independently handle ongoing operations.

We have a lot of work ahead of us to create a viable new charity.  Your generous contribution is important.  A few dollars adds credibility and encourages others. Please do not put it off.

PayPal works too!

Civilized societies provide care and comfort for all those in need. When a child experiences the devastating loss of a loving parent, growing up becomes difficult and burdensome.

Our plan is to model this project along the lines of the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. Marines raise funds to help pay for educating children of Marines. Children left behind by front-line medical workers who perished are no less deserving.

 

Our Project Mirrors the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation(MCSF)

 

The non-profit Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation(MCSF) works to fund scholarships for sons and daughters of present and former Marines, Navy Corpsmen and Chaplains. Recipients of scholarships are given awards in amounts commensurate with their individual circumstances and need.

 

Our Medical Workers Scholarship Fund project is working to emulate the success of the MCSF.
