Pierce & Mandell supported charity, The Eddie Mandell Memorial Scholarship Fund has been renamed the Eddie & Alyce Mandell Memorial Scholarship Fund, to now honor and perpetuate the memory of Firm Partner Bill Mandell’s late father and mother, Eddie & Alyce.
Founded in 2000 to honor the spirit of Eddie Mandell, the Scholarship Fund has provided financial assistance to hundreds of graduating students from Boston Public Schools to realize their dreams for higher education. Since its founding, thanks to our generous donors, including, Pierce & Mandell, and the firm’s friends and event attendees, we have awarded over $100,000.00 in college scholarships. With the passing in 2018 of Eddie’s wife and Bill mom, Alyce, the Fund is now known as the Eddie & Alyce Mandell Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Commenting on the renaming Bill noted, “my mom Alyce shared with my dad, Eddie, immense generosity and kindness, and they were most passionate about helping kids get into and staying in college. My mom helped found the Scholarship Fund to keep Eddie’s spirit alive, and she enjoyed attending the scholarship award ceremonies and meeting the Fund’s scholarship recipients. It is fitting that we now honor Eddie and Alyce and their blessed memory together, as during their lives they truly were partners in making the world a little bit of a better place.”
