I have been a donor to FEGS for the past 5 years in the form of providing scholarships to young people that FEGS has chosen that best embodied the requirements of the scholarships. The counseling, training and mentoring that FEGS provided these wonderful and remarkable recipients made a difference in their lives as they struggled through many hardships in their young lives. If it were not for FEGS these recipients would not have been as successful as they were. Thanks to the exceptional management and staff of this wonderful organization for fulfilling the hopes of these recipients and for perfectly fulfilling the intent of the scholarships I have been proud to give. I hope to be able to continue to provide FEGS with these scholarships in memory of a wonderful educator who would be equally proud of these recipients and of the works of this organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Their work with counseling and mentoring young men and women through difficult times in their families to achieve remarkable successes.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their expressed warmth toward their clients.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Exceptional in the depth and breadth of their experience and knowledge.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Our country's economy would experience at least a 10 fold return on this investment in the placement of people into jobs or careers they would most likely have not had the least bit of a chance.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
