Your Academy Foundation Impacts Members’ Lives, Career
Are you aware of the scholarship support your Academy Foundation provides today and how the effort has grown over the years?
The Foundation was established 56 years ago with a single donation to fund a scholarship. This gift to the future set the Foundation on a path to become the leading funder of scholarships to nutrition and dietetics professionals at all levels of study. For the 2022-2023 academic year the Foundation granted over $850,000 to more than 300 deserving students. Each scholarship awardee has a story about how this scholarship will make an impact on their career. Watch this short video to hear the stories from several awardees.
There’s so many more heart-warming stories to tell about Foundation scholarship winners. I also want you to meet some of the Foundation donors who are changing lives with their support, dollar by dollar and scholar by scholar. Watch for my weekly updates as we move into the giving season. Our members lead the way in gifts. Their generous giving helped to establish 90% of all Foundation named scholarship funds. None of this success would be possible without support from members like you!
Scholarships are just one way the Foundation supports advancing our profession and individual food and nutrition professionals. Visit www.eatrightfoundation.org today to learn more about how your Foundation is impacting members’ lives and careers.
It is an honor for me to lead your Foundation this year and to share our wonderful legacy with you.
