DR MARTIN LUTHER KING PARADE FOUNDATION, INC.
“GIVE 28 TO EDUCATE”
The Dr. Martin Luther King Parade Foundation, Inc. has established the “Give 28 to Educate” Scholarship Program. In honor of the 28 year anniversary of the City of Tampa’s Martin Luther King Day Parade, the Foundation is soliciting minimum $28 contributions from all who want to contribute. College costs are increasingly out of reach for far too many deserving students and a college education has endured as a major key to success. A $28 contribution allows donors big and small to make a difference in the future of our young achievers of tomorrow.
Dr. King was a staunch supporter of education for all and the Parade Foundation wants to honor his support by doing the same. This program is also consistent with the Foundation’s mission of ensuring lasting positive community impact stemming from the one day parade event.
Scholarship candidates will have demonstrated not only academic excellence but a heart for service embodying the ideas of Dr. King himself. Community service hours are a part of the scholarship application criteria so the scholarship awardees have an established track record for service as a prerequisite.
Larger contributions are of course welcome but your $28 will go a long way to helping us reach our goals. Awardees going forward will be announced at our annual Parade Gala preceding the parade in January.
