CAN’T WAIT

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN IN 2021

How we formed.

On September 11, 2011, the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Saint Mary High School Class of ‘81 chose to establish the John Griffin 9/11 Foundation to honor the memory of their fallen classmate, “Griff”.

The mission of our Foundation is to award tuition assistance to a currently enrolled Saint Mary High School student whose family is unable to meet tuition costs due to extenuating circumstances. Criteria for eligibility is set by the Foundation Committee in conjunction with the SMHS Principal. The amount distributed is contingent upon the success of our benchmark fundraiser, “Griff Rocks On.” We invite you to join us, be a sponsor or make a donation. To date, the foundation has awarded $34,850. With your help, we plan to award a great deal more!

As evidenced by the heartwarming testimonials of Griff’s wife, June, and the many family and friends in this video, Griff’s zest for life, contagious sense of humor, gift of friendship and spirit of giving are at the heart of our tuition assistance mission.
