Scholarships are at the heart of our purpose. With your help, your foundation funds and manages close to 100 scholarships. Through these needs, merit and study-specific scholarships we give people access to success, change lives and change our communities.

Recent high school graduates, adults returning to the classroom after years in the workforce, veterans and those displaced by the changing economy have all benefited from the scholarships you help fund.

Thank you.

If you want to fund a specific scholarship or start a new one in memory of someone dear to you, please contact the Executive Director at 304.424.8340 or
