The Promise Partners

The dream of offering scholarships to motivated students, many the first in their family to attend college, could not happen without the support of the following Promise Partners. Their generous donations reflect their commitment to education as the way to make lives better and build a strong, viable and vibrant America.


We’re pleased that almost all our donors continue to recommit for another four years, some even increasing their commitments, allowing us to offer new scholarships again this year.
