The Marcy Shulman Memorial Organization Grant Program is named in honor of one of the founding members of the Colburn-Keenan Foundation’s Board of Directors, Marcy Shulman. Marcy was a long-time friend, co-worker, and collaborator of the Foundation’s founders, Donald Colburn and Kathy Ann Keenan. Marcy helped bring to fruition Don’s and Kathy’s final project, the Colburn-Keenan Foundation, following their passing from cancer in 2006. Marcy worked tirelessly developing the support programs and fine-tuning the mission of the Foundation, even as she battled cancer which would finally claim her in December of 2010.
