$55,000 Goal

The Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation supports high school and college students with dyslexia, or similar language-based disability, who are pursuing a degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) field.

Joseph James Morelli was a young man who graduated from Park City High School and was pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering at Montana State University, despite having dyslexia, when he was tragically killed in a car accident in 2014.  Our mission is to honor Joseph’s spirit. Through the awarding of scholarships, we recognize students, who like Joseph struggle with dyslexia, and empower them to believe in themselves. 

To date we have awarded over 330 scholarships, totaling more than $550,000.  Your gift is helping these young adults receive much needed tutoring, testing, accommodations, resources and tuition support, which can make the difference between success and failure.  But more than the financial support, your generous support builds students’ self-esteem and confidence, as well as restores the dream of being worthy and deserving of an education. 

Liam Wallis, a three-time Morelli Scholar and Park City High School graduate, states: “The Morelli Foundation has equipped me to push through whatever obstacles are thrown in my path, and that means the world to me.”

We would like to thank Promontory Foundation for their generous matching grant donation!  Please help us reach our goal of $40,000 so that we may continue to change lives!
