Annual Letter To Our Benefactors

September 2015

"Remembrance matched by generosity is a powerful memorial."
-- Charlie Devlin

Thirteen years into our journey, The Thomas M. Brennan Memorial Foundation continues to flourish. Since inception, in Tom’s memory we have disbursed over $400,000 in scholarship grants to 21 Boston College students. Moreover, with an endowment that has grown to $2.0 million, we are poised to expand our impact in the future.

Last year, the Foundation raised over $180,000. In addition, our net operating cash flow was augmented by an 8% return on our investment portfolio in 2014. The continued growth of the Foundation’s endowment has enabled us again to expand our scholarship grant program at Boston College. Over the summer, we again awarded four-year partial scholarships to three incoming freshmen: Liam Formisano of Oldwick, New Jersey; Alyssa Russ of Rutland, Massachusetts; and Emily Ianazzi of Fairfield, Connecticut. These new scholars will join John Stedman (Walpole, Massachusetts), Danielle Gaudet (Lynn, Massachusetts), and Erica Fallon (Norwell, Massachusetts) of the Class of 2018; Andrew Breckel (Hebron, Connecticut), Rachel Walker (Norfolk, Massachusetts), and Natasha Bednarz (Yardley, Pennsylvania) of the Class of 2017; and Jane Motter (Hamden, Connecticut) and Erin Sutton (Hopedale, Massachusetts) of the Class of 2016 as Thomas M. Brennan Memorial Scholars at BC. We encourage you to visit the Foundation’s website ( to learn more about our current scholars.

Ten of our scholars have graduated from BC and have set out to make their mark in the world of finance, social services, education, accounting, and law. Several of them have chosen to given back to the Foundation by joining the Foundation's Scholarship and Investments Committees.

On the fundraising front, the Board has decided to forgo the golf outing this year. Nevertheless, we are hopeful that you will prayerfully consider supporting our cause again, and have enclosed a donation card in this mailing. You may also donate online at our website,

.Thank you again for your support and for helping us to honor the memory of Tom Brennan.

Ever to Excel,

The Board of Directors
