William C. & Marjorie W. Glenn Endowment Fund

Established 2012

Marjorie W. & William C. Glenn

This fund provides income for the Community Foundation’s discretionary grantmaking program.

William Charles (1939-2021) and Marjorie Willett Glenn were both born at Copley Memorial Hospital (now Rush Copley Hospital) in Aurora.

Mr. Glenn was a graduate of East Aurora High School. He attended Dartmouth College where he earned his bachelor of arts degree in history and an MBA from the Tuck School of Business.

Marjorie (Mardi) Glenn is a graduate of West Aurora High School and attended DePauw University where she earned her bachelor of arts degree in music education.

During their careers, Mr. and Mrs. Glenn worked together to grow and further establish Olsson Roofing Company as an ongoing professional leader in the commercial roofing industry.

Olsson Roofing Company celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2014.

In 1987, the Glenns created the Olsson Roofing Company Scholarship Fund with the Community Foundation to encourage the opportunity for college-level education within the ranks of construction families.

In addition to their dedication to Olsson Roofing Company and raising their three children, both Mr. and Mrs. Glenn served on numerous community and charitable boards.

The Glenns wished to recognize the city, its history, the cultural and educational opportunities as well as the people of the community for enriching their lives.

It was their desire that their gift benefit the lives of those residing in the Fox Valley area now and in the future.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!
