Cancer for College provides college scholarships and educational opportunities for low-income, high-achieving cancer survivors.
Through our ongoing initiatives, campaigns and industry event series, Goodroot Foundation and RemedyOne have donated over $1 million dollars to Cancer for College, thus far. With the help of donations like this, Cancer for College hopes to amplify its success by bringing new resources to the cause.
The Joe Freebairn Scholarship Fund, created to honor his life, will benefit a student at Northwest Catholic High School.
In memory of Joe Freebairn, a loving husband, father, grandfather and uncle to Mike and Colleen Waterbury. Joe’s vivacious spirit was seen by everyone who knew him. His legacy lives on through the memories he created with his family, friends and the community at large. Most notably, Joe gave of his time. He represented a foundation for love, acts of kindness and dedication to mankind. Joe Freebairn was known for subtle actions that created lasting impressions.
It’s an honor to memorialize Joe’s legacy through Catholic education in our community. His legacy will make the world a better place, one relationship and one moment at a time. This 2020-2021 academic year, a scholarship will be awarded to the most deserving candidate who is eager to attend Northwest Catholic High School in West Hartford, CT. This grant will be dispersed to one gentleman that meets and/or exceeds the application criteria.
Goodroot Foundation proudly sponsors The Joe Freebairn Scholarship Fund and works directly with The Foundation for the Advancement of Catholic Schools, the fund administrator.
