Stauber Matching Grant Success
We Did It!
The Sherry Monty Scholarship Fund of SMILES has been strengthened by $30,000
A generous matching grant challenge by the Stauber Family Foundation has resulted in a successful campaign raising more than $30,000 toward the Sherry Monty Scholarship Fund of SMILES. SMILES supporters have come together to raise more than $15,000 in scholarship dollars, which has now been matched by the Stauber Family Foundation with another $15,000. The Sherry Monty Scholarship Fund has now been strengthened to provide even more scholarships to clients who desire to benefit from SMILES services, but who also require special financial assistance to be able pay their program fees.
SMILES is grateful to all of the donors who participated in this effort! With the support of individuals, volunteers, local service groups, and several area employee workplace campaigns, our goal has been successfully met. Each and every gift was critical, and each and every gift was necessary to bring us to this place of celebration.
We are delighted to thank and recognize the following supporters for their dedication and generosity toward our scholarship fund:
