What began as a memorial to one philanthropic and devoted man has become a community asset— a family of individuals, corporations, private foundations, and community service organizations who share the belief that education is the key to a better life for the young people we serve.
The George Snow Scholarship Fund’s mission is to help hard working students in South Florida to graduate from college by providing financial aid and wrap-around support services. Our goal is to ensure that no student is deprived of an education because of a shortage of funds or a lack of support.
What sets the Scholarship Fund apart from most other scholarship providers is our holistic approach to supporting our scholars. Not only do we provide our scholars with financial support for their educational expenses but perhaps more importantly our organization provides support to our scholars through many support programs which are designed to increase the graduation rates of our scholars and make them feel like family.
2020 Great Charity Challenge
The Great Charity Challenge presented by Fidelity Investments® has distributed more than $13.5 million to 240 Palm Beach County charities since its inception in 2010.
We were one of the lucky non-profits on Saturday evening, February 1st, who benefited from the Great Charity Challenge with a $5,000 grant! A huge thank you to Fidelity Investments®, Great Charity Challenge, the Bellissimo Family, the riders and the team and corporate sponsors who enable the Great Charity Challenge to continue to help local non-profits. Thank you to all who made this such an amazing evening!
