Albert Davis was a fixture in the Elizabeth community, managing F.W. Woolworth's store on Broad Street for many years. He donated his time and talent to Elizabeth-based organizations including the Rotary Club of Elizabeth. His wife Louise shared his enthusiasm for the Elizabeth community, and in particular its youth. In their wills , the Davis' directed a large bequest to further what was then the fledgling scholarship program of the Club.

The Albert and Louise Davis Scholarship Fund must rely on the generosity of those who can join its commitment to the youth of Elizabeth.

Details on giving opportunities are available on request.
