Backpacks + College Scholarships Fund

BACKPACKS + COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS FUND is a school supply and college financial aid drive put together by the YAC to support participants from First Tee – Greater Charleston.  This program provides school supplies to kids in the Charleston area that may need a kick-start to their school year with a new backpack, supplies, or both.  This initiative also provides college financial aid for high school seniors who want to further their education through a two-year, four-year, vocational, military, or technical school.

Donations for this fund will first be applied to provide backpacks to any children in our programming who need them.  100% of overage will be applied to college scholarships.  Support a Lowcountry kid’s education today!

If you are a parent and interested in school supplies for your child (PreK-12th grade), please click here to email Program Director, Meghan Taylor.  If you are a high school-age participant interested in learning more and applying for the high school scholarship, please click here.
