The mission of the Matthew Welch Scholarship Foundation is to provide educational, training and mentoring opportunities for children and young adults in the Chicago south suburban region.

In life, Matthew Welch was a kind young man. He was generous with his time and with his resources, especially in his community of Country Club Hills, Illinois.
In death, he is making a difference in the lives of other young people who are still making their way in this world.
When Matt died in January, 2009 at the age of 32 after a brief illness, those who loved him chose to remember him by establishing The Matthew Welch Scholarship Foundation.
