The Belinda Anderson “I Matter” Scholarship Fund

The Impact and Importance of Scholarships


Scholarships provide an opportunity for many people to earn an education. Without assistance from an outside source, students may have trouble paying for the degree they need in order to enter the workforce and become a contributing member of society. Not only do scholarship recipients learn specific subject matter, they learn the importance of philanthropy and giving back. Without the kindness of others, the road to a degree would likely have been much more difficult. Hopefully, this sentiment continues with them through life and they find ways to assist and give back to others in the future.

Inspire Our Future College Fund

Saving For Kids’ College Education


 If you’re like a lot of Americans, you probably dream of the day that you’ll be able to help your children with their college costs. Most of us know the pain of graduating college with thousands of student loan debt to our name. We hope and dream that we will be able to do something about it so our kids have a debt-free start after college. However, most of us don’t even know where to start when it comes to saving for college. It feels overwhelming and too far fetched of an idea. For Brown Girls, Inc. wants to help make a difference.  

The Inspire Our Future College Fund will be given to (2) mothers-to-be per fiscal year to help establish financial security for their children’s future. 

Our goal is giving a child a head start in life.
