The Melissa Maduro Fund

Melissa Maduro loved Israel and and she loved children. Family, as well as her Jewish identity, was always important to Melissa. She had a gift for languages and was always eager to learn. Melissa died young, leaving behind a young family. 


The Melissa Maduro Fund will provide scholarships to needy students who, like Melissa, love to learn and widen their horizons. English language skills will open the doors to their choice of career - engineering, education, languages, leadership, science, hi tech, medicine... 


We hope these young children will reflect Melissa's dreams in the fulfillment of their potential as part of Israel's exciting future. Contributions to the Melissa Maduro Fund will help perpetuate her memory.
