(Vision) To be the community leader in providing our residents with need-based financial aid to pursue further education opportunities that lead to achieving degree attainment.

(Values)

Stewardship We are accountable to internal and external stakeholders for the finances and operations of the organization, and, through prudent management of entrusted funds, we are committed to maintaining the high quality of our grant-making and services.

Sincerity We respect our donors and carry out their wishes while maintaining the confidentiality of both the donors' and grant recipients' financial matters.

Compassion We are genuinely interested in bettering the lives of our students and our community.

Community We maintain an active concern for Holmes County residents, and within the Foundation's means we are committed to meeting their educational needs for their own and the County's long-term well-being.

Trust We are committed to earning and maintaining the trust of the community by accurately reporting our activities and ensuring an open door policy.

Our organization has gained the trust and respect of our local community over the last 27 years. The leadership team and staff work hard to promote the positive impact that our funds have on the futures of our students. We invest donors' funds wisely and aim to meet the financial needs of those students who otherwise could not attend a higher education institution.

We use the local high school graduating senior college-going rate data to gauge the higher education plans of the student body annually. When the foundation was created in 1989, our local college-going rate was 47%. In 2015, the college-going rate of our students was 58%. We are seeing an increase in the number of students attending college and we believe that our financial aid assistance is contributing to this increase.

We have accomplished providing more than $7 million in scholarships to more than 2,500 students in 27 years. We believe that many students and their families still believe that a college education is unattainable and too costly. We need to reach more students with our message and help them access college and pay for it.

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).
