Photo Coverage: Friars Foundation's ADOPT A SCHOLAR Reception

The Friars Foundation was established in 1977 as the charitable arm of the Friars Club. It is a publicly supported Foundation and is the conduit through which the Friars accomplish one of its major goals: the betterment of society, particularly in the area of the performing arts. The mission of the Friars Foundation is to help performing arts groups create excellent innovative and affordable programs for the enrichment, education, and enjoyment of diverse audiences and participants.

Through the Adopt-A Scholar Program the Foundation helps to prepare the next generation of performers and musical artists by raising money to guarantee a college education for those students who aspire to a career in the performing arts. This program will award four-year scholarships and help build a capital base to expand the program for future generations.
Frank Sinatra (Friar Abbot 1975-1996) said about the Friars: "Their continuous good work for charity, rather than their great triumphs on the stages of the world, is the true glory of this band of earthly angels known as the Friars."
