Join us for our free Celebration Event on August 17th, 5:00 - 9:00 PM at The Shed Promontory in Park City, UT

Celebrating Joseph's legacy, our Morelli Scholars, and 10 years of empowering college students with dyslexia through scholarships, recognition, and moentoring.

Governance

The Mission of the Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation, (The Foundation), is overseen by its Board of Directors. The Foundation has assembled an experienced group of medical, financial, legal, and business professionals, all of whom are committed to transparency to the fullest extent possible in all aspects of the Foundation’s operations.

All Board members, officers, and committee members serve as volunteers, and no compensation is paid for their services. The Foundation’s administrative matters are carried out by a paid, part-time consultant.

The core mission of the Foundation is to honor Joseph’s spirit by awarding scholarships to deserving undergraduate college and trade school students who have dyslexia, and who are pursuing a course of study in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) and to empower these students to believe in themselves.  Each year, several hundred students from across the country submit a detailed application. Over the course of nearly two months, The Scholarship Review Committee conducts several rounds of reviews in an effort to narrow the list of awardees, who are then recommended to the Board for final approval. Scholarships are awarded for one full academic year, and consideration is also given to prior awardees in an effort to support them throughout their college career.

The Foundation has also undertaken a mentoring initiative, designed to support select awardees during the critical first year of college or trade school, when the adjustment from high school can be especially challenging for students who have a learning disability.

Every November, Live PC Give PC brings Park City and Summit County together for 24 hours of extreme generosity. Supporters both local and nationwide come together for this annual fundraiser. All donations made between now and midnight Nov 3rd count towards our donation goal.

We Need Your Support on November 3, 2023

To date we have awarded over 330 scholarships, totaling more than $550,000. Your gift is helping these young adults receive much needed tutoring, testing, accommodations, resources and tuition support, which can make the difference between success and failure. But more than the financial support, your generous support builds students’ self-esteem and confidence, as well as restores the dream of being worthy and deserving of an education.

We would like to thank Promontory Foundation for their generous matching grant donation!  Please help us reach our goal of $40,000 so that we may continue to change lives!
