"We know that, as an organization, we are able to fulfill our mission only through the generosity of kind and giving people just like you."
Tim Snow, President
The Snow Education Endowment
THE SNOW EDUCATION ENDOWMENT is a community asset that provides hope and opportunity to our area’s brightest and most talented youth. The endowment funds come from the generosity of donors’ legacy gifts, which are then invested. The income earned from these investments provides annual scholarships and support services to Snow Scholars.
Your contribution to the Snow Education Endowment is more than a donation. It is an investment in our future, and the impact of these donations is felt not only in South Florida, but also around the world. Year after year, Snow Scholars graduate from college excited and eager to establish their careers and give back to the community. Donors to the Snow Education Endowment become members of the Founders Society and are helping to build an enduring foundation of support for the educational mission of the George Snow Scholarship Fund. Check out the Founders Society webpage for more information.
The goal of the Snow Education Endowment is to build an enduring foundation for the educational mission of the George Snow Scholarship Fund.
The Snow Education Endowment includes the following funds:
The General Scholarship Fund is used exclusively to support scholarships and scholarship support services. These funds are awarded, as four-year commitments, to the most deserving students. They are designed to bridge the gap between financial aid granted by colleges, as well as state and federal aid sources and what the recipients’ families need in order to afford college.
A Named Endowment Fund gives donors the opportunity to create a perpetual scholarship fund that will, annually, support a scholar in your family’s name and memory. When you create an endowment, not only are you showing appreciation for your family or loved ones, but it could also give you the opportunity to help like-minded individuals succeed who have chosen your same career path.

This fund ensures that each Snow Scholar has the tools and support needed to finish school. Scholars need more than just financial resources to reach their goals, they also require ongoing support and encouragement. Our staff has developed innovative programs that address those needs and greatly improve each scholar’s chances of graduation
The George Snow Scholarship Fund is very proud of their alumni, all they have accomplished, and all the ways that they give back. One of the many ways they give back is by contributing to the Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund.
Each of the very special people listed below have, through their passing, created a lasting legacy that will forever keep their memories alive. While each is an individual, all share a common love for knowledge and education. The George Snow Scholarship is fortunate to play a small part in the continuance of their legacies and encourage you to learn more about these fine people and the goodness of their hearts by reading more about them. We are proud to be a part of their memories.
