About the Fund

This fund is dedicated in memory of Philadelphia Highway Patrol Sergeant Patrick McDonald, who made the ultimate sacrifice protecting the lives of his fellow man on September 23, 2008.

Since the tragic day that Pat heroically lost his life, the love and support from his family, friends, co-workers and the local business community has been overwhelming. As a result of the incredible generosity of so many, this fund was established.

Pat lived a life filled with pride and discipline. Every endeavor reflected his intensity and determination to achieve excellence. Ideally, those who benefit from this fund will emulate the principles by which Pat lived, thereby keeping alive the legacy of our fallen hero.

The Sergeant Patrick McDonald Scholarship Fund is recognized as a public charity under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to the Fund are tax deductible under section 170 of the Code.
