The Emma Durham Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) organization that was founded to honor Emma Durham. Emma was a friend to many and her battle with Ewing Sarcoma left a mark on the hearts of many.
After Emma went to be with the Lord, some of those closest to her formed the Emma Durham Foundation, Inc., with the mission of keeping Emma’s memory alive by raising money to award a scholarship to a graduating female athlete from the two local high schools, Shelby County High School and Martha Layne Collins High School. This was the first goal of the foundation and we have begun to expand on what Emma wanted.
The Emma Durham Foundation, Inc., is made of a seven-member board and many community and family volunteers. Some of our fundraising events include:
- Annual Emma Durham Basketball Classic
- Annual Emma Durham Golf Scramble
- Light Up Shelbyville
