Location7 Bumblebee LnNorwalk, CT 06851 United States
The objective of the Fund is to recognize through scholarships demonstrated achievement across the spectrum of academics, the arts, athletics, and community and religious service.
The Kevin M. Eidt Memorial Scholarship Fund was established through the generosity of the many people Kevin touched in his short life. Kevin, an 18-year-old dean's list freshman in the honors program at Boston College, passed away from cardiac arrest on January 23, 1997 while playing intramural basketball. Kevin set the example of the passion and sincerity we should bring to each day. He was an individual with vision, commitment, abiding hope, aspirations, and compassion. And when we look back, it was a life, albeit a glimpse of life, by which people can be measured and judged by.
Since its inception in 1997 Kevin's Fund has awarded $2.7 million in scholarships to 214 recipients.
In 2023 Kevin's Fund is supporting 11 scholarships totaling $160,500 primarily for Norwalk High School and Boston College.
