A Message to Our Friends and Supporters - Save The Date!




 Can you BELIEVE IT?!  The Urquhart Memorial Foundation was founded in 2002. After two years of formation and funding we held our First Annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony on Sunday August 4, 2004 at Holy Temple Holiness Church in Philadelphia, PA. UMF Scholarships totaling $41.5k were presented to sixteen students.

Since that memorable start, the UMF has awarded scholarships to over 600 students, totaling nearly $1.5m. Further, we are proud to report that most of those students have graduated and are now productive citizens making a difference via their chosen areas of profession.

Saturday August 11, 2018 the Urquhart Memorial Foundation wants to celebrate with you at its Fifteenth Annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony during our "UMF 15" weekend in Philadelphia, PA.  

Join us as we humbly but joyously celebrate a blessed milestone of blessings others.
