Who we are...
In 1954, Mario Tonon, Principal of Brunswick High School,
created the Brunswick Area Student Aid Fund. In the first
year, six scholarships of $50.00 each were awarded. Today,
citizens, students and local businesses, coupled with sound
management, have helped create our present endowment of
approximately $3.5 million; recent annual awards
approached or exceeded $260,000.
In addition to post-secondary education grants, the Fund
pays for eye glasses, clothing, doctors, dentists and other
necessities on behalf of elementary and secondary school
students for families in need.
