Support the next generation of small-business owners

Date: March 05, 2014

While you are busy running your business, NFIB is busy protecting your right to own, operate and grow your business.  In addition to advocacy, another way NFIB supports free enterprise is through our Young Entrepreneur Foundation scholarship opportunity for graduating high school seniors.  

Since 2003, the NFIB YEF has awarded over 2,500 scholarships totaling $2.5 million.  

This year, the goal in Texas is to sponsor two $1,000 scholarships.   We hope you'll join us this year in making an investment in America's future.  Please consider a donation of $50, $100, or more to help a Texas student continue their education, while still building their business. 

What a great way to show your support for tomorrow's business leaders today by contributing to the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Awards.

In order to complete the funding for the scholarship program, payment is needed no later than March 31, 2014.  The good news is that it's tax deductible!

Thank you to those of you who supported the YEF in the past both as a contributor and as a nominator.  You may donate online at

On behalf of Texas high school seniors, please consider making a financial commitment to this worthwhile cause.  There is strength in numbers!  Together, we can make a difference by supporting the future business leaders of Texas.
