Jackie Anderson Scholarship Fund endowed at Roosevelt U
2018-02-02

Longtime Chicago civil-rights activist Jackie Anderson will be remembered in a more permanent way, after her passing Jan. 7. Her family has established a scholarship in her name at Roosevelt University. Thanks to initial donations, the $5,000 scholarship is now endowed, but donations are needed to be used toward students.

Roosevelt University held a special place in Anderson's heart. One promise she asked Torrence ( her grandson ) to keep was to start a scholarship fund for young African-American female students to help continue their pursuit of higher education. She understood that $1,000 could be the difference between degree completion and dropping out. Therefore, a donation to the Jackie Anderson Scholarship Fund is being sought by family and friends.

See 59965.thankyou4caring.org/cas — in the tribute portion at the bottom, you can select the drop down to reflect that the gift is in memory of Jackie Anderson.

Also, for those preferring checks, checks may be made out to Roosevelt University. Please note in the check memo that the gift is: IMO (In Memory Of) Jackie Anderson. Each gift will be added toward the endowed scholarship that has been established in memory of Jackie.

The check can be mailed to:

Roosevelt University
