The annual Gjergj Kastrioti Scholarship Fund Gala will be held at The Palazzo Grande in Shelby Township on Saturday, January 28th, 2023 at 7:00pm. The proceeds of the event will be used to support Albanian-American scholars in the state of Michigan who are pursuing a four-year degree in one of our state’s colleges and universities. Over 200,000 Albanian-Americans call Michigan home and this organization is helping produce its leaders of tomorrow.
The Gjergj Kastrioti Scholarship Fund is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1999 with the following mission: support Albanian-American youth in their pursuit of higher education by providing scholarship support. It was founded by a group of Albanian-American university graduates who wanted to make a difference and give back to the community they loved so much.
In the past 20 years, the Fund has awarded 170 scholars and awarded over $330,000. The legacy of promoting proactive philanthropy and community development continues and we seek your help in raising funds so we can support even more Albanian-American students as they pursue a college degree.
There are opportunities to sponsor the Gjergj Kastrioti Scholarship Fund Fundraising Gala set out in our sponsorship package (click to download).
