The Marcia Mounsey Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to providing musical, athletic and cultural opportunities for children in Northwest Denver.
Please Note: It is with deep sadness that the Marcia Mounsey Foundation has decided to stop operations as of May 1, 2015. Unfortunately, no further scholarships will be awarded after that date. All current scholarship commitments will be met through May 1, 2015. Please email the Foundation if you have further questions.
The Marcia Mounsey Foundation was established in 1997 in memory of Marcia Mounsey who was an active violinist, gymnast, and high-jumper who grew up in Northwest Denver. When illness cut her life short at the age of 17, her family and friends saw the Marcia Mounsey Foundation as way to honor her memory, and a natural extension of Marcia’s passion and generosity in life. In her memory, friends and family have made donations to this cause, and the network of caring people grows yearly.
The Marcia Mounsey Foundation partners with local families by granting partial scholarships for private training in extra-curricular activities like music, sports, art, and dance. Scholarship recipients have honed their skills on a variety of musical instruments, as well as on the soccer field, balance beam and track teams.The Marica Mounsey Foundation also cooperates with local organizations to sponsor events such as 5-k races, basketball camps, musical events and poetry readings in local schools.
Since 1997 the Marcia Mounsey Foundation has distributed over $100,000 in scholarships to hundreds of talented young people.
