Rosalyn Saltz did not attend college; her family could not afford the cost. While she continued to learn independently, her lack of a university education was a lifelong regret. Her three  daughters conceived of a fund to help others achieve what their mother only dreamed of doing.


The Fund is celebrating its tenth year and has assisted eight recipients in their pursuit of college and post-college work.
