Special Stars Fund
Special Funds for Special Reasons
Jóvenes Adelante is proud to have three special funds for three special reasons in addition to our sponsorship opportunities. Each of these funds has been named for a JA founder:
Susi Beere Student Emergency Fund
Once in a while, a student finds him- or herself in a financial emergency not of his or her making. For instance, a student got all the way to graduation and found out that his university no longer had credentialing power (We no longer recommend that school!). He found a university that would accept his credits (rare!) and gained admittance, but needed the funds to see him through a semester there to prove his abilities. That is the purpose of the Susie Beer Student Emergency Fund. Give now!
Bob Hesdorfer Founder’s Scholarship
Once in a while, we don’t have sponsors for all the the students for whom we are sure that university is a must. In those cases, we look to see if there are smaller donations that could be aggregated to cover a scholarship. We then name that scholarship in honor of this founder. Give today!
Betse Davies Special Stars Fund
When founder Betse Davies learned of one exceptionally qualified scholarship applicant who could not provide the 1/3 financial match that Jovenes Adelante requires, she donated to bring that exceptional student aboard, thereby creating the Betse Davies Special Stars Fund. Give here!
