YEP Student Spotlight: Molly

Meet Molly, a senior at Rosary High School. This is her first year in YEP. “I wanted to be a part of YEP because I saw it as an exciting leadership opportunity that would foster my love for service and giving back to my community. Making a difference in my community is important to me because I feel that even the smallest of positive efforts can go a long way in creating a thriving community. I believe a positive change is possible and it brings me joy to know that I am a part of creating this change. I love helping the youth of my community and volunteering with children fills me with unique satisfaction and joy. The knowledge that I can help make a difference in their lives empowers me and equips me with confidence as I seek to make a difference in my future.”

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

President Emeritus

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.
