“An investment on knowledge
bares the best interest.”
- Benjamin Franklin
Cancer for College is driven to provide a more personal relationship with our scholars beyond granting a scholarship. To deliver this, we have built educational programming that enables our scholars to interact with board members, donors, professionals and other scholars as they work toward their educational goals.
We call this THE CFC INSPIRE PROJECT
CFC Scholar Education day at Funny or Die/Gary Sanchez Productions for students looking for a career in the entertainment industry.
As part of THE CFC INSPIRE PROJECT, Cancer for College has implemented monthly meet ups between scholars, board members and donors.
We call these meet ups CFC IMPACT. It’s an opportunity to learn more about the needs of the scholar, provide professional mentorship and share wisdom to positively impact their future.
The program also exposes new donors to our scholars and the services we provide.
The second part of THE CFC INSPIRE PROJECT, involves quarterly educational events that we call CFC LEARN.
A small group of recipients is gathered for an educational experience and discussion designed to expose them to professionals working in a field that is of interest to the scholar.
This experience also exposes potential donors to our scholars and forms a more personal bond.
The final component of THE CFC INSPIRE PROJECT is our new camp experience we call CAMP THRIVE.
This is a multi-day event featuring educational experiences, field trips and guest speakers brought in to talk about potential career paths and the transition from college to the workforce. We also plan to include health related topics including nutrition, physical fitness, mental health and more. We will kick this off with 10-12 scholars attending a camp in summer of 2019.
Pay it Forward…
