On January 6, 2012, Doris W. Eakes, president and founder of the Trinity Children Foundation, presented a check for $11,775 to continue funding Donna Morse Scholarship Fund at Cape Fear Community College (CFCC).
Part of the funds was used to complete an endowment that will provide ongoing benefits for the students who will receive help through the Donna Morse Scholarship. The endowment will earn interest over the years to fund future years of scholarships. This way, CFCC will be able to help students in need in perpetuity. Scholarships from the endowment will be available spring 2013 for student awards.
The vision of the Trinity Children Foundation is to provide abused and at risk children with “the opportunity to enjoy life to the fullest.” The funds have provided scholarships for children who have been supported by The Carousel Center of Wilmington, The Boys & Girls Homes of Lake Waccamaw and Southmountain Children & Family Services of Nebo, NC.
The funds for the scholarship were raised through the second-annual Trinity Children Golf Invitational event held at River Landing Resort in Wallace, NC in September 2011. $1,775 was delegated to add to the Donna Morse Scholarship Fund for students at CFCC to be awarded during the 2012-2013 academic year. “I am happy to announce that our second year’s event gained a larger return for the children,” said Eakes. “The 2012 Trinity Children Golf Invitational date is set for August 10, 2012 and will be held at River Landing Resort. We look forward to the continued growth and success of our Trinity Children Foundation fundraising events.”
