About the Client
The Mark Forester Foundation has been established to honor an American Hero, Mark Andrew Forester, and to provide a venue for the generosity of family, friends, and acquaintances of Mark that will benefit others. We are a tax-exempt, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. It is the desire of Mark’s family that his example be preserved and shared with the world. First and foremost, we do this by providing a college scholarship to at least one Haleyville High School student each year. The city of Haleyville and the school system have been very supportive to our family since Mark’s death and we want to give back to our home town. We also want students to understand that freedom does not come without a price. We take awarding this student(s) scholarship very seriously. A scholarship will be awarded to a deserving student(s) who exemplifies the same character traits and patriotism that were the basis of Mark’s life. The foundation will allow these and other goals to be accomplished.
