The Rev. George T. Ruffolo CMF Memorial Scholarship Foundation, a charitable not for profit corporation, is dedicated to preserving the memory of Father George T. Ruffolo CMF and forging forward with his mission of encouraging, stimulating and empowering Hispanic youth to achieve their dreams. The Foundation strives to make a significant difference in the lives of deserving Hispanic students by providing scholarships to students in Chicago's inner city who are matriculating full time at a post-secondary academic institution and to students of good character and ability who aspire to effect change and make an impact in the Hispanic Community.
