High-Five Scholarship Fund

$830 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 9 months
Created October 26, 2018

What we're doing:

In March 2017, St. Louis-based high school custodian, George Love, used money from his tax return and paychecks to give four hardworking students at Vashon High School $500 each ($2000 in total) in scholarship money. The scholarship money was raised privately by Mr. Love and his wife, Stephanie; not a penny was acquired through government assistance or fundraising.

Since then, Mr. Love and his Dorothy May-Walker Love Scholarship Fund has been featured on local TV news segments as well as the Steve Harvey show.

Our Mission:

Our mission is simple: to increase school attendance rates, academic performance, and classroom engagement by motivating students with grassroots funded scholarships. Mr. Love wants to meet students where they’re at and show them that if they invest in themselves, others will invest in them too. With the help of generous donors, we can improve the outcomes of many more disadvantaged St. Louis high school students.


Why we need your help:

Mr. Love is continuing his mission to grant scholarships to inner city youth at Vashon High School and throughout the St. Louis Public School District. Although he is currently working a custodian job at Vashon High to raise funds for deserving students, the reality is, he's going to need our help to scale his efforts.

Many of these students and their families don't have the resources to adequately invest in their educational futures, so a $500 check goes a long way. Also, by investing in these kids' futures, we send a hopeful message to other students from disadvantaged areas: "If you invest in yourself, others will invest in you."

$10 is all it takes to help.

If you would like to directly impact the future of deserving students in a simple yet incredibly effective way, please donate and share this page. If we can get 2000 people donating at least $10 (the price of lunch), we will reach our goal very quickly.                                                  

Thank you for your contributions. If you cannot contribute at this time, sharing this page on social media or through email would be greatly appreciated. 

P.S. If we meet our goal, we will continue to update this page long after the campaign has ended with pictures and stories of the students you invested in.

Supporting our communities with a Servitude Attitude towards Humanity. With Love, we will Feed and Clothe the less fortunate; With Compassion, we will Educate and encourage our youth through Academic Improvement.
