Proudly serving the communities of Englewood, Teaneck and Hackensack

November 13, 2020


The year 2020 has morphed into unprecedented times, resulting in many unexpected “norms” as a result of the following: a worldwide pandemic; living in quarantine for nearly seven months; exercising social distancing; wearing face coverings; adapting to a virtual mode of interaction; and lastly, witnessing social, civil and racial unrest! Alas, despite the noted, we are still committed to the work for the betterment of the greater Bergen County.

For more than twenty-five years, the Diamond Scholarship Charitable Fund (DSCF) has been assisting high school seniors in Bergen County achieve their dream of attending college. Through the financial support of people such as you, the DSCF has been able to award over 125 scholarships to deserving students. We are proud to report that many of those young men have returned home, and now are making major contributions to their communities.

The DSCF was really looking forward to hosting our 28th Annual Scholarship Dinner Dance on Saturday, November 14, 2020. However, like so many other things this year, we made the tough decision to cancel our event due to COVID-19. Although we discussed having a virtual event, we ultimately decided not to move forward. This does not stop our goal, as there will be a “Class of 2021” in the spring. This class and the aspiring young men have already begun completing college applications and are awaiting acceptance letters. Therefore, the financial needs will still exist.  

In short, the DSCF is asking you to help us continue to help some students fulfill their dream of attending college in the fall 2021. By making a tax-deductible gift on or before December 31, 2020, we can still maintain our commitment to aspiring young male students of color. If able, below are the ways to make your gift:
