Tiner Foundation Update

(2007 Mark Tiner Memorial Recipients)

The Mark P. Tiner Education Foundation, a fund of The Orange County Community Foundation, CA 501 (C) 3, received over 60 applications for the second annual Tiner Financial Needs Scholarship. Applications from Santa Ana to Irvine to Laguna Niguel were received (the recipient will be announced in a few months).

The scholarship is open to all graduating high school seniors in Orange County, CA who demonstrate financial needs. Last year the foundation awarded a $750 scholarship to a female graduating senior from Aliso Niguel High School.

This year the scholarship has increased to $1,000.

I'm excited to have the opportunity to assist another deserving and industrious student in the Orange County, CA area.

About The Mark P. Tiner Education Foundation:
Shortly after my brother passed away in 2004 a memorial fund was established at Laguna Beach High School, which is a fund of The Dollars for Scholars. The local community contributed money to the fund and consequentially, each year I award a scholarship to students at Laguna Beach High School.

In 2006, with the assistance of friends I established The Mark P. Tiner Education Foundation, a fund of The Orange County Community Foundation, CA 501 (C) 3.

After seeing the impact of Mark's memorial foundation on the lives of students in Laguna Beach, I wanted to assist deserving students from all of Orange County, CA with the cost of tuition and continue my brother's memory.

I'm excited that the scholarships awarded are given off endowed funds, so they will exist in perpetuity.
