Maureen Faulkner wanted to find a way to place a silver lining around Danny’s death, so she created Daniel Faulkner Educational Grant Fund, a 501c(3) non-profit, in 2000.  “So many people needlessly suffer violent crimes and tragedies. After the initial news buzz their families are left alone to pick up the pieces. Besides offering moral support, we assist the children of these victims in furthering their education,” says Maureen Faulkner. “We founded the charity to help the survivors and let them know they are part of an extended family.” Through the Daniel Faulkner Educational Grant Fund, Maureen Faulkner and the Fund’s Board of Directors grant scholarships to these children throughout the Delaware Valley.

About Justice for Police Officer Daniel Faulkner

In 1998, Maureen Faulkner and a group of friends founded Justice for Police Officer Daniel Faulkner, a 501c(3) non-profit organized to honor her slain husband Danny’s memory and to combat the propaganda of those seeking to free the man who murdered him. Although Danny Faulkner was murdered 30 years ago, and his killer was convicted and sentenced to death, the Faulkner family must face a seemingly never ending legal battle. Despite numerous attempts by Abu-Jamal’s supporters to overturn the verdict, it has withstood the test of time, and he remains on death row. Without the support of Justice for Police Officer Daniel Faulkner, the Faulkner family – and specifically Maureen – could not afford to keep up the vigilant fight.
