Thank you to our sponsors

We appreciate the generosity of our sponsors, who are the main source of funding for the scholarships we offer. SFM Foundation awards scholarships to a growing number of applicants each year. The more sponsors we have, the more students we can help.

The bottom line is without our supporters, many of these families wouldn’t get the help they need. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to our SFM Foundation sponsors. Your support helps change lives.

“With the help of our generous supporters, we are able to enrich the lives of young people who have experienced tragedies in their families through higher education. Many of these young people wouldn’t normally be able to afford college due to their circumstances, and we provide that opportunity. We encourage you to join the SFM Foundation family of individual and corporate supporters who make these dreams a reality.
