Legal Scholarship To Be Awarded in Memory of John Foley

The Nonprofit Chamber of Palm Beach County has established the John A. Foley, Esq. Legal Scholarship Fund to honor a man who dedicated his life and career to the nonprofit community in Palm Beach County.

Working at the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County, John established the Nonprofit Legal Assistance Project, providing legal assistance to more than 60 nonprofits for more than 20 years. He did so with passion and compassion and all who knew him considered him a cherished friend. He was honored many times by the nonprofit community for his professionalism, his humility, and his zest for life and for the underserved.

Sadly for all of us who knew him, loved him, benefitted from his friendship or his years of good works, John died in 2021 at the age of 60.

The Nonprofit Chamber will honor his memory through a scholarship to be awarded to a Florida law student who plans to practice Public Interest Law as John did. The scholarship will be awarded at the Chamber’s Community Spirit Awards Luncheon September 22, 2021.
