On Monday, July 15, 2019, the Matt McGloin Fund, will host its 4th Annual Matt McGloin Charity Golf Tournament at Glen Oak County Club in Clarks Summit to help carry out the fund’s mission and its charitable causes in the Lackawanna County region.
This week, we proudly share the story of the Matt McGloin Fund of the Scranton Area Community Foundation, which was established by Matt McGloin in 2017 to support charitable causes in the Lackawanna County region.
After helping a handful of local nonprofit organizations annually over the years, Matt McGloin decided to form his own namesake fund at the Scranton Area Community Foundation to be able to assist more organizations locally.
To date, the Matt McGloin Fund has provided oral health kits for hundreds of local children and youth, provided funding to help a child being treated for cancer, and provided funding to support veteran’s causes. Additionally, the fund awards a scholarship annually to one male or female graduating senior of West Scranton High School who has participated in athletics, has demonstrated financial need, demonstrated outstanding community service and will be furthering their education by attending a college, university or trade school.
The Matt McGloin Charity Golf Tournament is the largest event that Matt McGloin, along with his family and friends, hosts throughout the year to help grow the fund to maximize its impact in the community. For more information about the tournament, visit: https://www.facebook.com/McGloinCharityGolf/
