The Herb-IT-Forward Foundation is truly an outstanding organization. The scholarship is based on academics, financial need and their strong desire to give back to the community. Throughout the year HIFF offers many activities for the students to participate in, motivational speakers, camp, mentoring programs, networking, volunteering and all around fun activities.
Spending time with such an extraordinary group of students has been an amazing experience and I am thrilled to be part of this special family.

The Herb It Forward Foundation goes above and beyond for the scholarship recipients. Not only does the nonprofit help us students fund our university education but HIF also helps us grow as kind, thoughtful, engaged student who wants to give back to the world. I learned how to be more positive during the Campowerment Poconos event. HIF is changing lives and I am so glad to be part of the organization!

The-Herb-It-Forward Foundation is an exceptional organization which doesn’t just stop at giving out scholarships to deserving students. Through a well-informed, hardworking, and caring staff, the students receive mentoring. For example, the foundation sponsors a camp outing based on a leadership theme and teaches the students the skills they will need to succeed. An end of the summer dinner brings together the past and present winners for a discussion of their forthcoming year’s hopes and dreams. If that isn’t going the extra mile, I don’t know what is. This is truly a unique foundation.

Herb it Forward Foundation is truly amazing. I got introduced to them several years ago and what an inspiring initiative they have going in giving back and helping students further their education. You can tell they are much more than just a scholarship - they care deeply about their students and their continued relationship with each and every one of them. Keep up the good work!

This organization is one-of-a-kind in every sense! The team that runs it goes above and beyond, making it more of a family than a nonprofit. From camps, to networking events, to educational meet-ups, to mentoring, the HIFF team makes the scholarship money just the icing on the cake. The only thing better than the team is the HIFF scholars - these young people are truly exceptional. Despite the obstacles they face, they are determined to make the world a better place - the HIFF organization is not only inspiring, it's contagious. Once you join, you never want to leave.

Thumbs up for the Herb it Forward Foundation. Scholarships are awarded to residents of the City of Philadelphia and surrounding counties. Awards are based on academics, financial need and a penchant for paying it forward. All scholars are given the opportunity to attend a 3-day camp which allows them to meet other scholarship recipients, share experiences and explore new possibilities for their futures.

I have followed the Herb-It-Forward-Foundation since its inception. They are doing a wonderful job providing scholarships to students who in spite of experiencing their own challenges have a strong desire to give back to their community. In addition to providing financial support, HIFF also provides an opportunity for the students to bond among themselves thereby creating a support network which will be a resource for them for many years. If you are looking for a way to help aspiring students, HIFF is great choice.
