This fund was established in 1995 through a bequest received from the estate of Mr. Tighe for the benefit of Holy Angels Catholic Church of Aurora.

“Pat” Tighe (1907-1995) was the chief of police in Aurora during the 1950’s.

He then joined the brokerage firm of Scrap Corporation of America, retiring in 1990.

Mr. Tighe also was a special agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 1941 to 1945.

Alice Tighe (1911-1990) was a member of Holy Angels Church, Ladies of Columbus, Friendly Center Club and Mercy Center Auxiliary.

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!

There’s no question in my mind that the scholarship I received opened up possibilities.

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.

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.
