QF kicked off 2016 by granting $500 to Greenhouse Scholars, an organization that helps under-resourced high school students transition to and succeed in college. Greenhouse Scholars utilizes a holistic approach to support their scholars by providing financial, professional, emotional, and academic support. One important component of Greenhouse Scholars’ program is the peer support groups into which each scholar is placed to discuss the shared challenges of college life. The grant will be used to fund these peer support groups.
We’re proud to announce that with this grant, QF has awarded a total of $5,000 to local nonprofits!
Thank you to all the great organizations that submitted a video proposal this quarter! As always, it was a challenging decision to pick only one organization so if you weren’t selected, we encourage you to be on the lookout for the next relevant focus area and submit again soon.
