Zachary T. Schafer Memorial Fund

The Zachary T. Schafer Memorial Fund, established in 2019, is a tribute to the memory of Zach Schafer. Distributions are awarded annually in the form of the Zach Schafer Memorial Scholarship to a student(s) that most exemplifies Zach’s legacy of giving to and caring for others before himself.  
Recipients have demonstrated the ability to show kindness and compassion to others less fortunate than themselves.  In addition, they must have demonstrated a documented level of volunteerism in their community.

From time to time, grants will also be awarded to the JROTC , other high school programs, local volunteer first responder organizations and service oriented community groups that also exemplifies Zach’s legacy.
