$1.5 Million Annually for Students in Collier County
Attending college or trade school increases opportunity and opens doors.
We help open those doors by giving people a boost for their future
by connecting them to educational opportunities.

“I am super grateful and honored. This means I don’t have to worry about adding on to student loans I already have.
When I found out about the scholarship, I cried.”
— Viva Jean, 2018 award recipient
