American Legion Post # 769


Forging a brighter future

The Daniel W. Dowling American Legion Post 769 Scholarship Program is designed to fulfill a financial gap to eligible High School Students with plans to further their education at an accredited university or college.

Applications submitted are reviewed by our Scholarship Fund Team. We try to accommodate every student that applies at some level. Past awards, which have been from $1-4K (based on our fundraising results) are sent directly to the Students College Account. Recipients do not receive an in-hand cash award.

Our Martin Luther King Scholarship Breakfast

This year, 2021, we were unable to have the MLK Breakfast due to covid pandemic restrictions.

During the year, we promote the scholarship program and request donations for the upcoming year. Our major fundraiser is our "Annual Martin Luther King Breakfast", which is held at Normandy Farms, Blue Bell. They offer their facility at no charge for our Breakfast. It is highly attended by Local Educators, Township Officials, American Legion Members, Local Police Departments, Students, Doners and the surrounding community.
