Two quotes from the scholars best summarize how they felt about the Markey Trust.

The first one is:

One of most important aspects was not the dollars, but a feeling of protection in some way and camaraderie both between the participants and the people who were involved in the trust.

Money alone is not what it is about.

And the second one is:

I have warm feelings about the Trust. The only thing on my office wall is my Markey certificate.
