Progress Club Foundation, Inc.

The Foundation is the arm of our club that has raised and donated a considerable amount to various charities and organizations.  Over the past ten years alone we have contributed over $500,000.

 

This money has been raised by holding events such as art auctions, bingo nights and raffles, as well as from the generosity of our members. 

 

 

The Foundation also has a Scholarship Fund which benefits students at Montgomery College that have excelled in their studies and wish to continue their education but have a financial hardship.

 

After 9/11, the Foundation immediately contributed $10,000 to the families of Ladder Company #3, who had lost 11 firemen in that tragedy.

  • United Cerebral Palsy

 

 

  • American Cancer Society
