Thirty-years ago, two brothers, their family and friends decided they wanted to provide educational opportunities for high achieving students to succeed in high school and college who otherwise would not be afforded the chance. With this idea and vision, the Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund (DMSF) was founded and since then more than 2,600 Chicago students have been awarded the Daniel Murphy Scholarship.
Members of The 1989 Society have expressed their commitment to DMSF through a very special and important form of financial support. These donors have named DMSF as the beneficiary of a planned gift. Such gifts might include some of the options below. We're always available to help you choose the gift that's right for you.
