The United in Hope Scholarship is funded by the John Patrick Flanagan Foundation (“JPFF”)
and the Chad A. Jacobs Memorial Foundation (“CAJF”). These foundations were
established in memory of John Flanagan and Chad Jacobs shortly after they lost their lives
to cancer in 2008 and 2010, respectfully. John left behind a wife and three children. Chad
left behind a wife and two children. Losing a parent to cancer is devastating enough, the
financial burden often incurred by this disease and the death of a parent can be
debilitating. It is our goal that the United in Hope Scholarship will help offset the costs of
higher education for students who lost a parent and give families hope for the future.
JPFF’s mission is to help vulnerable children and families by supporting charities that provide the
direction, education and healthy environment that vulnerable children and families need to have
the opportunity to reach their full potential. CAJF’s mission is to provide academic and athletic
scholarships to families in financial need.
