Donie, Marie & Judy Marzuki Endowment Fund

Established 2004

Donie & Marie Marzuki
Donie & Marie Marzuki

This fund was established by the children of Donie and Marie Marzuki to recognize and honor their parents for their devotion and sacrifice in raising a family during difficult economic times.

Like many other people, Mr. and Mrs. Marzuki were first generation Americans who achieved a successful and fulfilling life in the face of adversity, including the loss of a child to fire.

Donie Marzuki (1895-1976) was employed as a milkman and Marie Marzuki (1901-1976) was a homemaker.

Their daughter Judy is also honored by this fund. In spite of profound disabilities, Judy Marzuki (1943-2000) overcame great obstacles to bring much joy and happiness to her family and friends.

This fund provides grants to Keeler Center of Aurora to encourage outdoor activities for their disabled clients.

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.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

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.

Sharon Stredde

President Emeritus

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!

…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.
