Doing Good: Remember Glenn Allen Scott
By Hampton Roads Community Foundation / February 20, 2016

In the fall of 2001, Rev. Anne C. Brower, M.D. and Glenn Allen Scott married in Norfolk, Virginia at the Christ & St. Luke's Episcopal Church where she had served as a minister after a career in medicine.

Both of the newlyweds were in their 60s and had full households so they “didn't need anything," Glenn has shared.

This is how the Glenn Allen Scott and Anne C. Brower Cultural Endowment Fund formed in honor of their marriage at the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. The permanent fund continues to support Hampton Roads arts and culture over a decade later.

This generous couple is gone now -- Anne passed away in 2013 and Glenn passed on February 8, 2016. But the Scott-Bower Fund they started will continue to do good forever in tribute to their marriage and love of their community. Indeed, the fund has already awarded over $21,000 in their names with the most recent grants going out from the community foundation to two cultural groups just days after Glenn passed away.

While we are saddened by the recent loss of Glenn, we fondly remember him and his work with the Virginia-Pilot for 45 years where he retired as associate editorial page editor. He was a champion for philanthropy.
