Creating Education Opportunity for
Extraordinary Students in 2017
The Joyce-Gillespie-Harrington Educational & Charitable Foundation seeks to advance educational opportunity for through its annual college scholarship program, support personal development and academic success for historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged middle school and high school students throughout Northern Virginia. The foundation also recognizes the academic achievements of these students during its annual award program and in partnership with other local organizations honoring high achieving middle and high school students in its area. During the last 6 years, we have awarded a total of 70 scholarships totaling $107,800.00.
In addition to our work to make a difference in the community that involves our annual Thanksgiving Holiday Dinner for the Homeless and Toys for Kids Holiday Program for economically disadvantaged, it is our strong belief that actively supporting academic success and scholarships truly make a major difference in improving our community.
As we begin our year end fundraising program on Giving Tuesday, please consider investing with us in our future. No amount is too small or too big.
With your help, we can do more!
Help our foundation reach its goal of doubling its total scholarship awards of $15,000 to $30,000 in 2017! We could provide higher scholarship awards to further assist outstanding students who overcome various personal challenges to secure the opportunity to pursue their college education.
Thank you for your support.
