Dunedin for Youth Scholarship Fund
The George J. Koutsourais Dunedin for Youth Scholarship Fund was established in memory of former Mayor/Commissioner Manuel G. Koutsourais’ son through a resolution by the Dunedin City Commission. The purpose of the Scholarship Fund is to generate contributions and donations from individuals, businesses and organizations to be used towards providing financial assistance to young children and teens of Dunedin whose families could not afford to register them for summer camps and other recreational programs. The Dunedin for Youth Scholarship Fund helps children build teamwork, life skills, self confidence, responsibility, healthy lifestyles, perseverance and friendships. If you would like to make a contribution and help today’s youth become tomorrow’s leaders, please call (727) 738-2920.
