About this fundraiser

You can make a difference in the life of a student and our community!

The Grow Your Own Multicultural Teacher Scholarship Program provides scholarships to minority students pursuing a career in education. Once their education is completed, our hope is that they will return to Beloit and our School District to begin their career.

In the School District of Beloit, African-American and Hispanic students comprise 56.7% of our student population (DPI 2019-2020 school year). Studies reveal that having educators of the same cultural background as the students they teach will have educational and life benefits that extend well beyond the classroom.

An investment in our students is an investment in our future. A small investment today will bring great rewards for our school district, for our students, for our commitment to inclusion and diversity, and for our community.
