 Narrative Description of Activities, Mission Statement and Summary of Organization

The John De Marco Scholarship Foundation (the “Foundation”) has been established to raise monies through various fundraisers and to use those monies to fund scholarships to high school athletes, particularly wrestling athletes, who meet certain qualifying criteria to be eligible for a scholarship and wish to continue their education beyond the high school level. The Foundation has been named in the honor of John De Marco, a highly respected and successful high school wrestling coach and physical education teacher in the State of New Jersey. Former students, wrestlers and friends of Mr. De Marco in recognition of Mr. De Marco’s induction into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and to honor a respected mentor, have founded the Foundation.

The Foundation’s activities are directed by five volunteer directors who also hold officer positions (the “Directors). Scholarships are expected to be awarded to one graduating high school senior wrestler at each of the four high schools in Toms River, New Jersey; consisting of three public high schools, Toms River High Schools South, North and East, and Monsignor Donovan High School, a parochial high school. Scholarship candidates will be provided an application, which will need to be completed and submitted to the Foundation. Together with recommendations from each school’s coaching staff regarding the individual’s leadership and good sportsmanship qualities, each candidate will need to have a minimum grade point average of 2.5
