Program 1

Scholarships for Students

Last year, 14 seniors from Peoria Unified high schools received scholarship funds to use for higher education. Through the Against all Odds Scholarship Program, students who have overcome amazing obstacles in their lives receive funds for post-secondary classes. The Community Service Scholarships rewarded six deserving seniors who gave more than 60 hours of community service back to our neighborhoods while maintaining high academic standards.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
