GREENWICH — Greenwich and Stamford nurses, police officers and firefighters who want a Catholic education for their children may find it a bit easier to pay the tuition bills — thanks to a local businessman and his wife.
Longtime Greenwich residents Mary Alice and Thomas O’Malley have committed $500,000 to the nonprofit Foundations in Education over the next five years to establish the scholarship fund for students to attend Trinity Catholic High School in Stamford.

Thomas O’Malley said he and his wife created this scholarship fund because they found Foundations in Education “innovative” and because Trinity Catholic offers “a superior educational product.” The O’Malleys have also made donations to Waterside School and Villa Maria School in Stamford. They gave $10 million to Manhattan College in the Bronx, N.Y., the largest donation in the school’s history, to finance a new student center. Thomas is a graduate of the Catholic liberal arts college and a former chairman of the school’s board of trustees.
