Grants Totaling Over $2 Million Launch New Fundraising Campaign

Summer 2019 | National

In recognition of Posse’s 30th anniversary, four corporations, four foundations, and 13 individuals have each made grants of $100,000 or more to the Foundation. The grants, which total over $2 million, mark the start of a new fundraising initiative, Posse’s Lead Sponsor Honor Roll.

In addition to their significant financial contributions, the corporations on the Honor Roll have been actively involved in developing career pathways for Posse Scholars in the workplace. Their employees have served as career coaches and volunteers for the Dynamic Assessment Process—Posse’s unique evaluation method through which nominated students are selected for the Posse Scholarship. Many of these companies have also donated space for program-related activities and participated in special workshops designed to expose Scholars to career opportunities in their industries.

Honor Roll donors include:

Kelly and Carrie Barlow
Alastair and Jeanine Borthwick
