As we have mentioned, our families valued education and considered it a
gift to their children. We share that vision and cherish the gift of education
we received.
Tricia and I are pleased to announce that we are forming the Wise Irish
Women Foundation to provide scholarships for present and future “wise
women” of all backgrounds and connections. We also intend to support
children’s charities that focus on building character and providing opportunities for educational advancement. Most important, we hope we
can assist, in some small way, in helping other women and children see their dreams come true.
At the present time, one dollar from every book sold will be donated to the
foundation. We hope our book is so wildly successful that this number will grow exponentially in the future. Again, thank you for helping us honor our Grandmother, Peggy Prendergast, Tricia’s mother, Pat Prendergast
Connorton and my father, Thomas Aidan Prendergast.
