Marblehead Dollars for Scholars mourns the loss of longtime friend and supporter Judy Jacobi. Her contributions to our organization and the community at large reveal the depth of her kindness, caring, and empathy for others. We are so fortunate to have known her.

Judy  and her late husband Gene were champions for the good work that Marblehead Dollars for Scholars does to support the higher education financial needs of local students. This event will raise funds to provide more aid to our local scholars, while we remember our dear friend Judy.
Replay of the Event Kickoff: A Virtual Event Kickoff was held on Sunday, October 18th. Check out the video of the event which included a nice tribute to Judy and some special words from Marblehead Dollars for Scholars and scholarship recipients.  To view the recording of the event, click here.
