2017 is Sklar’s 15th anniversary, and we’re celebrating by giving back to the community that has given us so much. For every month of the year, our team has chosen one local charity that we’ll be supporting through donations, fundraising, and boosting awareness of their great work. These organizations create opportunities, lend a hand to people in hardship, and help make Boca Raton an even better place to live.
For the month of January, Sklar is proudly supporting the George Snow Scholarship Fund. George Snow was a former teacher who disappeared while piloting a helicopter in 1980. Two years later, the Snow family established the George Snow Scholarship Fund in his memory.
The George Snow Scholarship Fund provides four-year college scholarships to promising high school graduates in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, with no restrictions on their choice of school. By helping students earn their degrees, the George Snow Scholarship Fund improves their futures and equips them to contribute to their communities in the long term.
To date, the Fund has awarded $8.2 million in grants to Snow Scholars. Considered a leader in the field of scholarship administration, it was named the 2015 Scholarship Provider of the Year by The National Scholarship Providers’ Association.
