I met Diane and Kelsey when this idea of starting a scholarship program for kids with Tourettes was just a dream. I am so proud and amazed at what they have managed to achieve over the past few years. I am happy to have taken part in the scholarship selection process and I am always so amazed at the tenacity of these young adults, their ability to overcome adversity, deal with their Tourettes and still achieve such great grades, give back to the community etc. Diane and Kelsey work tirelessly to get volunteers to help them in this effort and to raise money to make these scholarships possible. I am privileged to be part of their extended team.
This is a wonderful, hardworking non profit striving to make college education a reality for motivated students who live with Tourette Syndrome. Their message and goals are clear, and I hope to see them continue to grow over the years. The Kelsey B Diamantis TS Scholarship Family Foundation helps to fund the additional monetary burdens that may arise when a scholar who lives with Tourette Syndrome pursues higher education. Education is so crucial and everyone deserves a shot at learning- this foundation provides that opportunity to many students!
I have been lucky enough to volunteer with this nonprofit a handful of times and have nothing but great things to say. The founders and board are full of compassionate individuals that really want to make a difference in the lives of young people. Not only do they do a great job at raising money for college scholarships thru their thoughtful and very fun events, but they also make sure to educate the community about TS! I am very much looking forward to seeing how this nonprofit grows. Please follow the nonprofit online and come out to one of their many events through out the year, you will want to see for yourself how wonderful D4TS and their mission is!
This nonprofit is great! The way they work so hard to raise money for the scholarships is amazing. All the kids are so deserving!
I am a university student sponsored by The Kelsey B. Diamantis TS Scholarship Family Foundation. Through their Dollars 4 Tic Scholars initiative, I have received funding for my educational expenses that significantly reduced the financial burden that college laid upon my family. Consequently, I have been studying, researching, and working with university organizations to a greater extent than I could have otherwise. Beyond that, and arguably more importantly, I've found that I've been able to be a regular college student. I am only 19 and am very grateful that I can enjoy my time here without having to work more part-time hours to support myself. D4TS has given me this freedom. For all of that, I'm very grateful for the work that they do and cannot recommend it enough.
Dollars 4 Tic Scholars (Kelsey B. Diamantis TS Scholarship Family Foundation) is an exceptional organization providing financial assistance in terms of college scholarships, summer camp sponsorships etc to people living with Tourette Syndrome. Kelsey and Diane are dedicated to this organization's mission. They spend a lot of time and effort organizing fundraising events to raise money for this noble cause that is close to their hearts. As a volunteer, I have been fortunate to be a part of this team.
This year, COVID-19 prevented them from hosting events like their much-loved annual summer paint parties. They rose to this unprecedented challenge. First, they showed their commitment to students by funding summer camp sponsorships using reserve funds. Then, they hosted a virtual "fill the paint can" campaign which raised hundreds of dollars to replenish their summer camp funds. Hats off to them and their supporters!

This organization is wonderful at helping kids pay for colleges that they might not otherwise be able to afford. Great cause, great leadership, great non-profit.
This nonprofit is superb in many ways! Very professional! Cares about granting opportunities to kids who are trying to go to college! I have loved being a part of the volunteer group and helping as much as I can. I've been educated about Tourette's syndrome and feel the need to want to help more because of them. Thanks.
D4TS is a much needed organization that fulfills a need for students who have Tourette Syndrome. By awarding college scholarships, D4TS is helping individuals like myself pursue their careers and feel confident doing so.
Growing up with Tourette's it was always hard not to feel alone, but the Kelsey Diamantis TS Foundation helped me find a community to lean on!
I grew up with Tourretes Syndrome and Kelsey B Diamantis Ts Scholarship Family Foundation Inc, awarded me a scholarship last year which helped cover part of my costs at LMU! Thank you so much, and please keep up the great work for others who have TS!
