Creation of the Johnny and Victor Weir-Voronov Scholarship Fund
Delaware Valley Legacy Fund: Delaware Valley Legacy Fund is pleased to announce the creation of the Johnny and Victor Weir-Voronov Scholarship Fund. This Fund is created to provide scholarships for LGBT self-identified students currently enrolled at an accredited institution to use toward the cost of higher education. Distributions from this fund may be used for tuition, room and board, and books or fees.
National data shows that LGBTQ youth are a vulnerable population and at risk of homelessness and bullying. School is a commonly hostile environment for LGBTQ youth—other youth often aim bullying and violence toward LGBTQ youth. As a result, LGBTQ youth experience high dropout and truancy rates.
“Investment in LGBTQ youth is a critical need, and it is inspirational to see Johnny and Victor lend their time and resources to help address this need, “said Samantha Giusti, Executive Director of the Delaware Valley Legacy Fund. “We are looking forward to working with Johnny and Victor to grow this scholarship to create lasting change.”
Donations to the Johnny and Victor Weir-Voronov Scholarship Fund can be sent to the Delaware Valley Legacy Fund, with “Johnny and Victor Weir-Voronov Scholarship Fund” in the memo of any check or online gift. Online donations can be made at www.dvlf.org.
