Donations: Help Create a Permanent Endowment Fund

Donations are graciously accepted to help fully fund a permanent endowment for the James Ledwith Memorial Scholarship.


The mission of the James Ledwith Memorial Scholarship is to recognize and assist deserving students with some financial assistance for their college education. Recipients are recognized for their hope, faith, courage and service to others, while continuing to pursue a "life dream" or professional / education goal in spite of facing extraordinary life challenges. Recognizing these deserving students honors James' memory.

A important goal is to establish a permanent endowment fund, that would always be able to recognize and assist deserving students. Twenty seven (27) scholarships have been granted in the 16 years since its beginning in 1997. Now under the stewardship of the Albuquerque Community Foundation a permanent endowment is possible, provided we can reach a minimum goal of $50,000.  If you are touched by "James' Story" and wish to help deserving students in the future, you can help get the endowment established through your generous contributions.  The endowment is already half funded. Please help us fund the remainder.


Donations may be made to the Albuquerque Community Foundation in a number of easy ways.

Please always specify that your donation is for the James Ledwith Memorial Scholarship.
