Zachary was a good kid. There is no doubt about it. To keep that name alive, The Zachary J. Marco Foundation for Hope has teamed up with Arizona State University (both entities are 501( c ) (3) charities and all contributions are tax deductible) to offer scholarships in his name, in perpetuity. The day after Zack was shot, he was scheduled to meet one of his professors and it is now certain, he was going to Washington DC as an intern. There are many other deserving kids out there who deserve to go as well, but they cannot afford the living expenses and therefore pass the opportunity by. This will help those kids go. Maybe one of them will change Washington, the way Zachary would have so changed the game:
From Arizona State University:
As a friend of Zachary Marco’s, his family and ASU, we invite you to make a gift to support the new scholarship established in his name, the Zachary J. Marco Capital Scholars Scholarship Endowment. We are honoring Zachary’s legacy with this very special tribute, a permanent endowment that will perpetually fund a need-based scholarship for an ASU undergraduate student to participate in the ASU Capital Scholars program in D.C. Since 1998, Capital Scholars students have had the unique opportunity to spend a summer in Washington, D.C., interning with legislators, federal agencies, advocacy groups, the media, nonprofit organizations, think tanks and policy research groups. Zachary excelled at ASU as a political science major in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and an honors student in the Barrett Honors College. He was in the Junior Fellows program, a page in the Arizona Legislature and aspired to be a legislative intern, a Capital Scholar and an attorney. A 2008 graduate of Red Mountain High School in Mesa, Arizona, Zachary was enrolled in the fall semester of his junior year when he was tragically killed near campus on October 17, 2010. The Zachary J. Marco Capital Scholars Scholarship will benefit many students who, like Zachary, have a passion for political science, philosophy and justice.
Please consider making a gift to support this scholarship endowment. You may make a gift online with your credit card at www.asufoundation.org/zacharymarcoscholarship.
