Keep Students from Going Hungry by Giving to the Food for Thought Fund

Jamie WilgerNews

Today is Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving. Generosity is our individual power to make a positive difference in the lives of others. We invite you to exercise your giving power to support the Food for Thought Fund at The Scholarship Foundation.

Every dollar awarded to Scholarship Foundation students is used to cover the soaring cost of college attendance, often leaving nothing for unexpected expenses. Many students who encounter financial hardships sacrifice meeting their basic needs to remain in school. A 2019 report from the Hope Center for College indicates that an alarming 45% of college students have experienced food insecurity.

This statistic represents thousands of real students who are going hungry. The Scholarship Foundation recognizes a community responsibility to set the table and sustain the next generation, and we invite you to join us by supporting our Food for Thought Fund on Giving Tuesday so we can provide grocery gift cards to students in need.
