The children of a late mother and nurse honor her today with the establishment a fund that financially assists struggling students trying to obtain their nursing degree.
The Mary Porcari Brady Charitable Gift Fund was established in 2006 by her surviving children. The MPB Fund is designed to serve community college nursing students in New York State facing emergency financial needs. There is no overhead or administrative costs taken from the fund. 100% of the donations are used to aid nursing students.
The MPB Fund has helped 86 nursing students graduate from Monroe Community College but the goal is to expand the program to all community colleges in the State.
On Monday, one of the fund recipients, who graduated in December and now works at a Rochester senior home thanked the Porcari family. Here’s the story from 13WHAM .
