While you are busy running your business, NFIB is busy protecting your right to own, operate and grow it. 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 2,000 scholarships totaling $2.3 million. Last year the Oregon Leadership Council awarded two scholarships by raising the funds. This year, the goal is to sponsor another 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 an Oregon student continue his or her education, while still building his or her 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.
To ensure that an Oregon graduating senior is awarded a scholarship, simply select the drop down option under the “name of scholarship” titled Oregon Leadership Council YEA.
You may also choose to fund your very own $1,000 scholarship and name it in the option Scholarship Name: unlisted.
On behalf of Oregon 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 our state.
