FREDERICK, MD – May 18, 2021: To help increase access to educational programs for non-traditional learners, The Dr. Larry J. Warner Fund has been established with The Community Foundation of Frederick County and becomes one of its more than 740 component funds.
Founded by Natalie Warner in memory of her husband, the fund’s purpose is to provide grants to nonprofits that support educational programs for non-traditional learners in Frederick County, with preference for programs offered through the Allied Health Academy at Frederick Community College. Special consideration will also be given but not limited to programs that support those who are learning English as a second language and programs that support financial literacy and other tools that educate individuals to break the cycle of poverty.
Dr. Warner practiced dermatology in Frederick for 47 years and cared deeply about his community. The fund in his memory will help provide vital educational support to Frederick County non-traditional learners for generations to come.
