Margaret Courtney loved the Foundation, its mission, and most importantly its scholarship recipients. She felt it was important to remember how this unique foundation was formed, the many people who had a part keeping it strong and vital for 70 years, and telling the stories of the Scholars. The last five years of Margaret’s life were dedicated to writing this book, collecting the stories, and editing its contents. This was a difficult task under any circumstances but was a herculean task for a 90-year-old.
This book will remind you of the impact that the Byrnes family had/has in your life. Whether it was the financial support, the mentorship, emotional support, or the friendship of fellow Byrnes brothers and sisters, you were hopefully touched in some ways.

Donate To The Foundation
In return for their generosity and support, Mom and Pop Byrnes asked only two things from us: become the very best people we could become in life, and make sure their legacy of family continues for those who come after us.
Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to the James F. Byrnes Foundation to secure its ability to invite more deserving young women and men to join the Byrnes family, both now and in the future. The Donate button will take you to the Paypal site where you can use your credit card or Paypal account to make a secure, one-time donation or set up a monthly recurring donation.
