Donate to the EMM Scholarship

Giving Strength. Giving Community.

Each year, United Neighborhood Houses awards $500 scholarships to settlement house staff members furthering their education. These scholarships help develop the next generation of leaders within UNH member organizations. Since the program was established in 2003, UNH has provided more than 800 scholarships!

Now, we need your help to keep the program going strong.

To donate specifically to the Emily Menlo Marks scholarship, please type "EMM" in the "In honor/memory of" field.

Our work is possible because of the generosity of our supporters, who join us in making a difference in the lives of New Yorkers in need.
