Scholarships make a real difference in the lives of hardworking students. They can help lessen the financial strain of school and help students concentrate on the most important thing: learning.

Small donations can add up to make a real difference and any gift, regardless of how big or small, can have an impact and inspire others to donate in the future.

During my senior year of high school, I was awarded a scholarship that dramatically changed the course of my life. And to this day, I still feel an overwhelming sense of thanks. I was extremely fortunate to receive funds that helped me pursue my college dreams and achieve my academic goals. This remarkable act of kindness helped me succeed professionally and become the person I am today.Ā
