Our on-going project is the endowment of an annual needs and merit based scholarship for a female student in the City College of New York Department of Theatre and Speech. Our long term goal is to reach up to $100,000 in charitable donations, which will establish the Alexandra DeSantis Memorial Scholarship at CCNY in perpetuity.
