Bryan Dilworth Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Fund Has Raised $22,295 for 2020-21

Bryan Dilworth’s generosity wasn’t unique to our basketball program. He had a tremendous heart and a passion for helping others. Besides being the largest private donor to the Neumann-Goretti basketball program, Bryan was also involved with Make The World Better, Sunday Love Project, and more.

At Neumann-Goretti, the basketball program is not just a chance to play basketball in high school. There is also a focus on creating opportunities for higher education through athletic scholarships, especially for those who may not be able to otherwise because of economic hardship.

In addition to our accomplished basketball coaching staff, we also have a year-round tutor. Who monitors our student-athletes performance in the classroom, helping when necessary, and with SAT prep.

This season all four graduating seniors will be attending college on basketball scholarships. While our juniors have several opportunities already to attend college on scholarships.

Bryan understood the program’s mission. He supported us in any way he could to help provide our young men with a brighter future.

Remembering Bryan Dilworth

This past season, just days after our 2nd round win in the PIAA state tournament, Bryan passed away at just 51 years old.

Only days before he was reaching out to the team to see if he could help the program for our state tournament run.

In memory of Bryan, we have set up a fund in his name. Donations will benefit the student-athletes in the program facing economic hardships.
