“Now it is my turn to Pay it Forward by using my education to work for positive change.  While I don’t know exactly where my path will lead me, I do know I will always be guided by a mindset of service to others.” – Kelly

Congratulation to our 2017 Scholarship recipients: Carley, Alyssa, Samantha, Stanley and Steven! We enjoyed reading the truly inspiring applications we received. A sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone who applied this year. The Pay It Forward Fund awarded a total of $14,000 this year!

The pay it forward fund gives me the ability to volunteer my time at college. Volunteering has shaped me into the person I am today and I am thankful for this community, although service may not always be pretty, it is worth it. I don’t know where exactly life will take me, but I will continue to volunteer wherever I may go. Thank you, Pay it Forward Fund.” – Carley


Receiving the Pay it Forward Scholarship means that I will be able to further my education and continue paying it forward throughout my entire life by pursuing Elementary Education at Liberty University. It is so encouraging that this foundation recognizes the importance of serving others in the community. It will forever be a reminder that because someone paid it forward for me when I needed it the most, I can follow their lead and also pay it forward.” – Alyssa

While there, I plan to continue helping others and I will be paying it forward for years to come.” – Samantha
