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.
