Our mission is to mobilize the local community to raise funds and provide scholarships to make post-secondary education possible for deserving students.

We were conceived around a simple idea: together we can step in and help local students achieve their educational goals. There's no greater gift we can give our student neighbors-in-need than access to the tools to create a brighter future. Doing so tells them that we take pride in their determination and share their dreams.

Our Tee It Up For Scholars Golf Tournament
Another Huge Success

 

Golfers and guests enjoyed a great day at our annual Tee It Up for Scholars Golf and Dinner Fundraiser, held on September 23rd st Rockrimmon Country Club and sponsored by The Whittingham Family Foundation. One hundred golfers gathered to compete for prizes while supporting local students. This year the event raised $28,000, which will include a four year $8,000 sponsored by The Whittingham Family Foundation and a one year $1,000 scholarship sponsored by Omnicom Capital.



All donations received through this campaign will create a single scholarship for a local graduating high school senior in 2020 who will become the first generation in their immediate family to pursue higher education.

Corporate Challenge Series Continues with Soccer

The 2019 SD4S Summer Soccer Series (part of our Corporate Challenge series of events) was again a huge success thanks to the participation of all 4 companies returning from last year: UBS, Interactive Brokers, Nestle Waters NA (NWNA) and Point 72. The event took place over 2 Monday evenings (July 8th and July 15th) with Point 72 and UBS winning their playoff games against Interactive Brokers and NWNA respectively to setup a repeat of last year's final. Players on the corporate teams "pay to play" by donating to SD4S in each game. Over $2,000 was raised from player donations alone and that number will climb to over $3,000 after corporate matching, enough to fund 3 scholarship awards to graduating high school seniors in 2020.
