Ways to Give

Foundation Funds


Gifts to the Annual Fund are not designated by the donor and support the overall mission and operation of the Foundation. This type of gift provides the flexibility to use the funds where they are most needed.

Proulx Scholarship & Challenge

Guylène Proulx Scholarship

The Guylène Proulx Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Dr. Guylène Proulx, OC, one of the preeminent researchers and communicators in the field of human behavior in emergencies. This Scholarship honors her legacy by building on the research in her chosen profession. Donations to this fund provide shorter-term award monies (up to $5,000 annually) to the Proulx Award recipient, selected by a panel of human behavior experts.

Robert W. Fitzgerald Challenge

April Hammond-Berkol created the Robert W. Fitzgerald Fund Challenge in tribute to retired WPI Professor Robert W. Fitzgerald. For every dollar donated to this fund, Hammond-Berkol will match one dollar, up to a maximum of $2,000 per year, for the next five years. All gifts to the Fitzgerald Fund Challenge will be placed into an endowment used to sustain funding for the Guylène Proulx Scholarship. Once the set endowment value has been reached the investment dollars will assist in supporting the scholarship.
