Making a difference for families in need

The SFM Foundation is a nonprofit that helps families affected by workplace injuries by providing scholarships to children of workers disabled or killed in work-related accidents. The financial burden of putting a student through college is real. Add a catastrophic injury into the mix and affording college is an even bigger challenge. We help education be more affordable for these students and their families by offering multi-year post-secondary scholarships.

“Funding college these days is hard enough for kids, but when you add in the fact that a family member has been critically injured, it puts a whole new level of stress on people. Thank you for helping my college dreams come true.
