The Andy Nowacki Memorial Scholarship Fund

OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE MEANINGFUL SCHOLARSHIPS TO THOSE SEEKING TO SERVE THE COMMUNITY AS PEACE OFFICERS, FIREFIGHTERS, EMTS, OR NURSES.

What We Do

The Andy Nowacki Foundation, Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit which relies solely on donations.

The Andy Nowacki Foundation, incorporated as a 501(c)3, was created by the family and friends of Marine Lance Cpl. Andrew “Ace” W. Nowacki, who lost his life on February 26, 2005 while protecting a convoy during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The Andy Nowacki Foundation, Inc. (the “Foundation”) provides meaningful scholarships for those seeking to serve the community in the fields of public safety or nursing. Through your participation and generous donations, the Foundation grants scholarships to candidates so they can serve others with compassion and dedication in the spirit of Andy.

Due to the current restrictions created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 15th Annual “Heroes or Andy Gala” has been postponed until April 10, 2021.

If you had already registered for the 2020 gala, please consider donating your registration fee to help us provide scholarships to deserving students this fall. If you chose to donate, we are grateful for your support and we thank you! No further action is required on your part.
