In 2007 that dream became reality and in 2009 The Danny Marona Performing Arts Scholarship Fund is understandably proud to have handed out twenty-five scholarships.

Danny Marona Performing Arts Scholarship Fund
Danny's recent retirement from the stage has now afforded him the time and opportunity to make the education of young performing artists not only a number one priority but a full time commitment as well.

Our founder is adamant in his belief that this scholarship fund must ultimately be able to exist independent of the name Danny Marona. "If we do not achieve that goal," says Danny, "we will have failed." "And I have no intention of failing." Learn more about the Danny Marona Performing Arts Scholarship Fund
