Since 1997 we have helped 577 eligible low-income students who show exceptional academic promise and have the potential to become the future leaders of tomorrow.

We Need Your Support...

Twenty-seven of Nassau County's promising young citizens will graduate this year and enter college next fall because of your generous gifts to Take Stock in Children's Scholarship Fund in the past.


This year we had 70 applicants but were only able to accept 22 new students due to the decline in scholarship gifts. Please help us Keep the Promise of scholarships, mentors and hope to more students.  (continue...)
