Donate to Avenue Scholars

Our Current and Future Needs

The support of generous individuals, families, foundations, and companies, makes the services of Avenue Scholars possible. Your support will make a profound difference in the lives of the Scholars we serve and the communities we impact. 

In order to maintain current services, we need to fundraise our entire annual budget each year. Growing services to new schools or adding additional Scholars into the program means we need to find additional financial support to grow and to hire new staff. 

If this program aligns with your giving goals, please reach out to Lindsay at [email protected] or give a gift today!

Founding Donors

Avenue Scholars was just an idea of what could begin to address the growing needs of area students who faced obstacles in the way of education and career opportunities, until this group of donors stepped in to help fund the program. In addition, these donors have given their time and expertise to Dr. Ken Bird and the Avenue Scholars staff as well as Scholars. We are forever grateful for these supporters:

Holland Foundation  |  Lozier Foundation  |  Suzanne & Walter Scott Foundation   | 
The Sherwood Foundation  |  Weitz Family Foundation  |  William and Ruth Scott Family Foundation
